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.

The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. The contact stated that after experiencing a flat tire. He attempted to use his lug nut wrench which would not remove the lug nuts as needed. Another vehicle came along and offered some assistance with a larger lug nut wrench. The vehicle was later taken to an independent mechanic who advised him that the lug nuts had expanded making it difficult to use the wrench. The vehicle was repaired by the tires being replaced. The failure mileage was approximately 85,000. Updated 03/11 the consumer was informed the lug nut wrench was too small. Updated 04/25/11
