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.

On or about the above caption date. While traveling North on St rt 219 (West seneca NY) I indicator on the car not low tire pressure. Within 1 minute of this notice the left rear tire of the car blew. Upon repair it was noted by the facility the cause of the failer was the TPMS sensor had corroded on the inside surface of the wheel due to the fact that dissimilar metals were in contact with each other. Brass threads of the TPMS sensor and the aluminum wheels. When sensor broke led to tire failure and loss of control of vehicle. Requested dealer inspect all for sensors under warranty. They refused sighting new tires were install on the vehicle within 3,000 miles of the incident. Dealer replace tire and sensor for damaged tire. Shortly after this remaining sensors failed requiring replacement. Dealer refused to cover these under warranty.
