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.

2012 Audi A7; 4 sidewall "bubbling" blowouts in a year. Being very careful to maintain correct tire pressure, and normal city driving. Two blowouts occured when car was in park. Vehicle dealer maintains blowouts are due to road hazards and they are not responsible.

Over the past 6 months 3 out of my 4 Continental contiprocontac tires have developed "bubbles" in the side wall. When the 1st (or even perhaps the 2nd) tire developed this problem, it might have been attributed to pot holes. It is summer now and I have driven very little but the 3rd tire has presented this problem. I keep the tires properly inflated. All of my tires are routinely examined personally and by the tire company when replacing previous tires. Updated 4/24/2015
