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.

1997 Acura CL Owner Comments

A sidewall bubble of approximately 1.5 inches has formed on each of two right side tires, nitto nt 555 zrs. One tire is just over 1.5 years old with under 10,000 miles on it. The other is older with more wear. The tires are working fine currently, but I am concerned that this might be hazardous. Searching the nitto site, I was unable to find an manufacturer's warranty, so appear to have no recourse to get the tire replaced. (both tires were on the car when I purchased it used so there is no receipt). Thank you, john greensage.
