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.

6 blowouts 4 rims all on the front drivers side there are scratches all along the drivers side by the tire. The drivers side door doesn't align. This has been happening since the 2nd day I financed the car.and I found out that my strut was blown which may of caused all the scratches. Dealership said it was my fault but I have a picture to proof those scratches were there the 2nd day I had the car. I just had another blowout this morning about a foot away from entering the highway.incident from 10/2001-to today.
