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.

I just purchased a new 2004 Mazda MPV, VIN [xxx]. I notice the owner's manual specifies a tire inflation pressure of 240 kpa (35 psi), but the vehicle placard states 240 kpa (32 psi). Since the correct conversion from 240 kpa to psi is 35 psi, it appears the vehicle placard is incorrect. Most users in the usa will use the psi amount to determine proper inflation pressure. Therefore, the incorrect placard inflation pressure of 32 psi will cause underinflation of the tire which can lead to tire failure and vehicle accident.
