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.

2003 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

Prius 4-cyl

Bridgestone tires supplied by manufacturer had began delaminating along inside rim because rear alignment on 2003 Toyota Prius was incorrect. One tire was near complete failure when discovered. The question is: Does the weight of the battery pack (placed immediately over the rear axle) cause the rear suspension to misalign in normal daily driving, which in turn places extreme wear on the inside of the rear tires? because the wear is on the inside of the tire, the problem may not be discovered before a blowout occurs.
