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.

problem #1

Aug 052008


  • 9,200 miles
The left rear wheel/tire assembly failed to hold air. A local tire merchant said that this is caused by the chrome plating separating from the aluminum alloy wheel. The dealer and Lincoln-Mercury said that the failure was due to brake dust getting on the outside of the wheel. They claimed that this was not a defect in the product and refused a warranty claim. They were unable to explain how dust on the outside of the wheel could cause the surface inside the tire to fail and leak air until the tire was flat.
