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.

Defective tires - 3 of 4 orginal tires have had blowouts so far in under the cars 9000 miles. All the holes looked the same in shape and size and have blowed out from the side wall. I have 2 of the 3 tires. I didn't keep the first one. But there appears to be problems with these tires so I kept the other two. I am concern about the 1 remaining orginal tire still on the car.( dot number: Tire size: 20565R15 )
