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.

: the contact stated while traveling 60 mph on a dry and flat interstate, the rear passenger side tire blew out, causing the vehicle to swerve to the left and almost collided with a median. Upon inspection, it was noticed that the whole sidewall had separated from the tread, and the front driver side tire had small spots where the tread joined the sidewall. A donut tire replaced the defective tire. On 09/18/06, the tire manufacturer was contacted, and suggested that the vehicle be taken to a tire dealership. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who agreed that the tire was defective but offered no resolution. The manufacturer suggested that the defective tires be sent in for inspection and that 4 new tires should be purchased. The tires were regularly checked for correct pressure, and rotated on time. The contact did not notice any vibrations while driving. There was no abnormal bulging in the tires. Prior to the incident, the contact noticed that the sidewalls on the front driver and rear passenger side tires were cracked.

The consumers vehicle had two tire failures within the last eleven months for no apparent reason. The manufacturer stated that they did not know why he was having tire failure. Michelin, primacy, size is 235/4517. On June 24,2004, the consumer noticed a loss of tire pressure which was about 1lb or 2 every month. The problem was unable to be figured out. While replacing the valve stem, along with placing the tire back on the rim while trying to re-inflate the tire, the inside wall of the tire blistered. The vehicle was unsafe to drive. The tire was sent to Michelin for evaluation. There was a tiny leak in the tire, but that wasn't enough to cause the blister, reevaluation could not determine why the tire blistered. The replacement tire failed on 5-25-2005 while in a parking lot and the tire wall began to separate from the tire. America tire company analyzed the tire, and no cause for the tire failure was determined. Also, this tire was sent for evaluation and the consumer has not heard anything yet. He tried to find out from tire manufacturer and Audi about the recalls, and they would not provide any information.
