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.

At 30,000 mile service I was told my car was "not safe to drive." The tires were worn to the cords. Toyota replaced them for free, but I was told that the Prius was known for having "problems" with their tires. Had I not been told about the condition of my tires, I might have had an accident. Other Prius owners should be notified of this. (tiresize: P175/65R14)

I was advised during a routine oil change that my tires were unsafe to drive on. I was also advised that tiyota knows that these unique tores fail at about 10,000 miles. Toyota says that these tires are the only type acceptable for use on this vehicle and to use another manufacturer will void the warranty. There are no replacement tires available and they (the dealer) estimates at least one month wait. (tiresize: P175/65R14)
