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.

2002 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #2

  • miles


Early a.M. went to car noticed tire completely flat due to 'cracked/defective' valve stem. Had purchased 4 new tires 2/8/07 from sam's club. They replaced valve stem but did not mention anything about a recall and did not check other valve stems for defects. I was not aware of recall until hearing it on the news this week. Now concerned about other tires and if the 'new replacement valve is safe.
