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.

2003 Audi A6 had four tires replaced due to cracking of the sidewall. ***** the consumer believes that when touching the curb while parking, the sidewall being so thin and low profile, simply crack, fail and puncture. The sidewalls cannot be fixed. This problem has occurred four times in the last two years. (pirelli P6 four season low profiles tires).

I now drive an Audi A6 with pirelli P/6 tires. I have had 5 blow-outs in the past 19 months. The sidewalls are either paper thin or non-existent. I have been driving for over 40 years and haven't had 5 flat tires in that time. These tires are dangerous and should not be allowed to be put on cars that drive on regular streets. I have notified the dealer" new country Audi of greenwich, ct. The sales manager said "didn't the salesperson tell you you had to be careful with these tires"" what kind of an answer is that"
