Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Lexus SC 430 developed problems with the equipped runflat tires. The consumer didn't like the run flat tires because they produced unbearable road noise and made the vehicle difficult to handle. When the tires encountered grooved pavement the steering became difficult to control. During a routine oil change the consumer was told that 2 of the tires were bulging and on exhibited excessive wear on the inside.

I own an "02 Lexus SC 430..with run flat tires. The tires pull badly when running on uneven ground..sometimes the pull is so bad you must hold the wheel firmly or you can lose control of the car. It is not safe. My wife is afraid to drive this car. The service advisor at 2 dealerships told me that is normal for run flat tires. I went to a tire dealer..he told me the same thing. These tires are not safe..and should be investigated by your Agency.
