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 contact stated while driving 65 mph on normal road conditions, a noise was heard from one of the tires. The right front tire blew out and the tire failure was on the outer wall. The same incident occurred several days after with the left front tire. The dealership replaced all four tires. Also, the brakes made a loud noise while driving 5 mph, and the ABS light illuminated intermittently. The dealership corrected the problem but the brake noise continued and on one occasion the wheels locked up. Recently, one of the rear tires blew out, but the dealership did not find any abnormality for this repetitive problem. The vehicle was taken to the dealership twelve times in a one and a half year period. The manufacturer was contacted, and advised to take the vehicle to the dealership for a diagnosis. The contact was very concerned because on top of the mechanical defects, other body defects like doors opening by itself while driving constituted a severe risk to safety.
