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.

problem #2

: the contact stated aftermarket rims and tires were installed on the vehicle. While making left turns the tires rubbed against the fender wall. The vehicle was taken back to the dealership where an aftermarket spacer bar was installed which temporarily remedied the problem. Afterwards, the dealership put the original tires and rims back on the vehicle. The contact believes the aftermarket spacer bar has interfered with the integrity of the vehicle.

I have a 2002 Volvo S60 AWD with pirelli P6 tires. Back in January I had a blowout after hitting a bump in the road. Now the 3 remaining tires have developed large bubbles in the sidewalls. All 4 of my rims are bent. I have complained to Volvo and pirelli tire. They blame the road conditions in the northeast. They offered no assistance. I have found other people with the same complaint. Over the weekend another tire went flat as one of the bubbles ruptured. As the car is not drivable, it sits in my driveway as I can't get anywhere with Volvo.
