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.

Was driving a 2011 Prius with just under 25,000 miles on October 18, 2012 on a 2 lane highway. A rear tire sidewall blew out. There was a rollover end for end down a very steep and long ditch. There were severe back injuries.

Prius 4-cyl

  • 240,000 miles
On October 18,2012 I was driving my 2011 Prius 2 on a 2 lane highway at 55 mph when the drivers side rear yokohama tire blew out on the sidewall. I swerved in to the left lane twice before leaving the road, snapping off a utility pole, going down a revine and rolling over end for end and side to side. I ended up in the middle of the back seat on my stomach facing the rear of the car. The drivers seat was broken back and my seatbelt was still on. I was in in the hospital for a month following back surgery. I had 3 cracked vertibre and one cracked rib as well as many bruises. Needless to say the car was totaled and I am still recovering 3.5 months later.
