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.

While driving on highway, rf tire separated (sidewall from tread) instantaneously. Tire was changed with spare. 10 minutes later lf tire blew out. Because vehicle is AWD, all 4 tires needed to be replaced immediately.

Tire required change. Used jack for car on level surface as described. Jack failed. Luckily I had a spare tire underneath the vehicle to prevent amputation of my arm when jack failed.

In less than two months two Continental tires were damaged by nails. The tires were not repairable. The customer relationship account manager informed me that the roads in the us are not as clean as they are in europe and low profile tires on luxury cars will always be prone to puncture or rupture by sharp objects. Consumers need to be informed of this risk by the "luxury" car dealers and the tire vendors. In terms of the state of the roads in the us compared to europe and the depris of nails and sharp objects on our roads, I think this statment is offensive and the tire vendors are just not taking responsibility for the quality of their products. Is there a rating system for measuring the safety of our roads at an international level? is so, how do our roads compare to those of europe and how do luxury cars handle safety conditions on our roads. Thank you.
