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.

Front tires cause car to vibrate above 60 mph; sometimes enough to cause me to deccelerate; vibration problem started last year; tires continually go out of balance; Firestone dealer says they can't see anything wrong with them; Goodyear dealer said the tires wobble on their balancing machine and should be replaced; Firestone says they can't do anything for me and say there must be something wrong with the vehicle.
