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.

I discovered approximately 15 months and 18000 miles after taking delivery of my new, 2009 Toyota/Scion Xb vehicle, that the "tire placard" information was incorrect (showing 35psi front and 32psi rear). It should have showed 39psi front and 37psi rear. I've been driving this whole time with grossly underinflated tires resulting in extremely uneven wear. The safety issue goes without saying...it is my understanding that a federal law/regulation requires the seller of new vehicles in the U.S. to put proper tire placard information on the vehicle. Toyota/Scion customer service says the dealer was negligent and the dealer says they have never put a correct/replacement placard on a new vehicle. Also, a rim had to be replaced (at my expense) after running over a small pothole several months ago...I contend that had the tire inflation information been correct, the damage wouldn't have been done and I wouldn't be out ~$600 to replace rim.
