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.

I was told that my tire had a defect but it was safe to drive. One person told me that it was a tire defect but he would not be able to say anything since he worked for the company. Then I was told that it had a bulge caused by a pot hole but it was not dangerous. While driving the tire blew out and literally lifted the car up on two wheels. I was so scared and upset after I regained control that I called the company and they said oh well. I have been complaining about the tires since they were put on last summer. They bounce constantly but yet cooper does not stand behind their so called high performance tires.

It's not enough to file a complaint but now it is worse. One of the tires from cooper that I filed a complaint about blew out forcing my car up on two wheels. I manage to control the car without flipping. Do I have to wait until I am killed or someone is hurt before something is done about the defective tires.

I purchased cooper tires last summer and do not have 10,000 miles on them and they are starting to fall apart. I had to replace one because they said it was damage because of a pot hole. Now I have another one that has a knot in it and I am told that it is due to a stress fracture in the tire cause by a pothole.. it seems like I am being taken advantage of because I am a woman and blonde. Two years ago my daughter had to have all 4 of her tires replaced that were cooper because she was told that the radial had flat sides.
