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.

The driver noticed that the right front tire deflated on it's own. This caused the consumer to put air in the tire daily. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for an inspection.

Driving at 40 mph on dry road when right rear tire came off of car causing loss of control of vehicle. Vehicle rolled over twice total loss of vehicle. On investigation it was noted that the right rear tire that had come off was still intact meaning no blow out and lug nuts were still in place but on the back side of the tire you could see where the spindle had separted from the strut housing causing the tire to come off the car. Also, on the left rear of the car. That tire remained attached to the car but pulled up and away from its attachment with the same defect noted at the spindle separation from the strut housing. I have pictures of all these details and have had several certified technicians look at the car and they have all come up with the same consensus that the separation of this spindle from the strut housing is what made the tire come off and thus causing loss of control of the vechile and total loss of the vehicle as deemed so by the insurance company. I suffered 2 fractured ribs, a ruptured tendon of the ac joint in my left shoulder and back pain that I am currently being treated for. I am out on disability because of these injuries. I am a registered nurse. Thankfully, my children were not in the car with me at the time of the accident. I fear that this might happen to someone else and lives could be lost.

Front driver side and passenger side wheels were leaking. Dealer had been contacted for replacement wheels, but that did not remedy the problem. Wheels are still leaking. Brakes make noise due to pad and rotor failure. Right front Goodyear tire losing air pressure, P225/50R16, dot number 0294302.
