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.

During visit to garage on August 11, 2000, for tire rotation the mechanic noticed severe cracking between treads on all four tires to the point that they were unsafe to be driven. These tires still have 50% of the tread left. In a question above I was unable to select all four tires -- I was only able to select front or rear and right or left. Please note that all four tires were cracked.( dot number: Tire size: P215/60R15 )
