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.

Just saw another complaint about tires, I have a tire I have to put air in every 2-3 months. Didn't give it much thought until I read other complaints about tires. I know I hadn't done anything wrong, it happened too fast. I've been filling it with air not thinking about it, but now I've heard others with tire issues, I thought I'd better submit an inquiry. May be too late for me because I've not acted until now, but may give assistance or lend credence to others.

I have Toyota Corolla 2003. Fletcher jones Toyota replaced all tires on December 11, 2004 and installed new Goodyear tires on this car. On May 17, 2005 I drove this car on highway at speed approximately 55 miles/hours and suddenly losted control. I reduced speed, but could not control car and it pulled off the road and stopped. The left rear tire became flat. I contacted Goodyear (claim #766745). In accordance with gooodyear, nothing wrong with tire. It just losted seal. They refused to replace tire.
