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.

Installed two new Bridgestone potenza pole position re 960as in July 2010(purchased from thetire rack),on my 2003 BMW 540I(at Bridgestone tire dealer).rear,275R1835.two months later while driving 40mph on a very well maintained road(lake shore drive, in Chicago),loud bang was herd from the back and got flat without running over any debris on the road.claimed through the seller(the tirerack),the tire was sent to the manufacturer for inspection(since the cut and the disintegration seemed consistent with material detect) but received a cold shoulder from them citing that the blown tire did not have a defect. The seller refused to honor my warranty(the tire was registered for that). What to do?
