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.

2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 262007

Aurora 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,446 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora. On two different occasions, the rims failed due to inner corrosion and deterioration. Additionally, the chrome was peeling and air was leaking from the rims. One tire continued to lose air, so the contact purchased four new tires. A few days later, the tires began losing air again due to deteriorated and corroded rims. The purchase date was unknown. The current mileage was 63,100 and failure mileage was 36,446. Updated 3/5/08

problem #1

  • miles
Possible due to dropping or poor handling at manufacture, the inside wall of the tire had a small hole in it about the damaged wheel, which was caused by dropping the rim on the floor, resulted in a slow leak and then a flat.
