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.

When switching to winter tires and wheels, cost is excessive to buy new TPMS sensors and have them reprogrammed twice a year. Dealers will not do the switch because it would be disabling a safety system. Although the original federal requirement was intended to increase safety, it actually may decrease safety for those in snow areas due to discouragement of use of proper winter tires. I have researched the original rulemaking. It appears that the costs were lowballed (much less than actual), and the winter tire issue was not analyzed at all. The NHTSA should provide some relief.

Forester 4-cyl

The original factory aluminum wheels are exhibiting pronounced corrosion and pitting stemming at the center of the wheel and moving radially outward. All four wheels show corrosion. Corrosion in unseen portions of the wheel is unknown. The concern is the corrosion is affecting the structural portions of the wheel.
