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.

Since the day of purchase we have had the same problem and have attempted to try to fix the problem, but have been unsuccessful. The dealership acknowledged the problem and stated they cannot fix it because they are not sure why it is happening. Tires on the driver, front and rear were put on backwards. Have contacted the company numerous times and have had three representatives look at the car with no satisfaction yet. We have sent registered letters, but have had no response. We live in a rural area and the roads are very curvy and this problem could contribute to a real problem. We would like to return this vehicle since they cannot fix the problem on any of their vehicles.( dot number: Fbefmsm438 tire size: 265/70R15 )
