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.

This wasn't a huge problem, just annoying whenever I turned left or right in my car. It turns out Pontiac recalled the tires on the car because once they were worn down a bit, they made this really loud rubbing noise whenever you turned. Apparently it wasn't a recall that they paid for though. Thanks Pontiac. The only reason I found out about the recall was because I had taken the car in to see what was wrong with it. Not really bothersome unless you were trying to carry on a conversation in the car and had to replace four perfectly good tires.
