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.

Request for reimbursement for problems recurring with pirelli tires and factory rims. Saab refused to provide a warranty explanation on the consumers tires and rims that were replaced and refused to offer any types of explanation on the integrity and safety of these specific tires and rims. The consumer received one payment but wants to remind Saab about the remainder of payments which he was entitled to. The consumer stated the left and right front tires ballooned out 12 inches on the inside. The consumer had to replace the rims and the tires. The check engine light illuminated.

Right rear control arm bent, leading to massive mis-alignment, and the ruining of 4 tires. Saab claims it resulted from "energy" not a defect. They say I must have driven it "too hard." I in fact babied the car, driving moderately, hitting no major bumps or holes. State farm claims it probably resulted from metal fatigue, not an impact. Won't pay because not impact related. I believe the arm was defective. Ordinary driving should not lead to a bent suspension.
