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.

2010 Volkswagen Routan Owner Comments

Front driver side tire rapidly deflated causing the vehicle to pull right into on coming traffic. The near miss could have been fatal. Upon investigation it was determined that the cause was corrosion of the TPMS valve. I did a quick internet investigation and learned that the corrosion and resulting tire failure are common incidents. Why haven't these faulty TPMS valves been recalled? this issue will surely result in deaths which I believe is the opposite of what these TPMS sensors are for.

The contact owns a 2010 Volkswagen Routan. The contact stated while driving 25 mph the left rear tire sensor that was located inside the tire came loose causing the tire to become flat. The vehicle was taken to a tire shop where they installed the spare tire and informed him of the loose sensor within the tire. The dealer nor manufacturer were notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 3,300.
