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.

My 2010 VW tdi sportwagon eats up the inside of the tires, very quickly. I just purchased my fifth set of tires for a car with less than 70,000 miles on it. I've had the alignment checked three times, and it continually shows to be within specs. The first two times, I had a VW dealership check the alignment, and both times they told me there was nothing they could do. I just had a private mechanic check the alignment, and he said I couldn't have a more perfect alignment, according to VW's specs. The last set of tires I purchased were rated for 55,000 miles, but I only got 15,000 out of them before the insides were worn down into the belts. This is a very dangerous situation since the rest of the tire looks new, and unless you get the car up on a lift, or lay down on the ground to deliberately look at the inside of the tires, you cannot see the damage taking place, and placing the operator in a situation where a blow-out can occur without warning. Plus, not to mention the extremely high cost of tire purchases to operate this vehicle.
