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.

I was driving down the street and hit a pothole. It was a very bad hit so I assumed it gave me a flat tire. I did not have a flat tire, the rim completely cracked in multiple places. I understand a rim bending but this severe of a crack is a danger to anyone who has this car or these rims.

Tires put on the 2014 VW Jetta gli (dunlop sport) from factory are of very poor quality and could cause a blow-out and an accident. First incident with pothole caused a tire blow-out on front passenger tire, but executed a controlled maneuver to pull the vehicle over. Second incident involved no pothole or abnormal circumstances but resulted in a bubble in the sidewall of another tire. Bubble was caught before blow-out incident could occur. These tires are unsafe and there are numerous complaints of this dunlop sport tire scattered across the internet. NHTSA needs to take action by requiring Volkswagen to replace these tires with tires of better quality that will not develop compromised sidewalls or are at risk to blow-outs. This should be done at no cost to the consumer as VW made the decision to equip the vehicles with these poor quality unsafe tires.
