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.

After getting off the freeway and driving on surface streets, I had a complete tire blow out. When pulled over the resulting tire was torn to shreds. The tire was purchased a little over 3 years ago with about 25,000 miles on it. The tires were recently maintained (rotated and aligned). There was a good amount of tread still remaining on tire. Fortunately, I was able to pull over into a parking lot and call for road assistance. However, because of the complete disintegration of the tire, my rim was totally damaged. I feel that because I regularly maintain my car including the tires, this should not have happened unless for a defect in the tire.
