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.

1998 Buick Park Avenue Owner Comments

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have a 1998 Buick park ave. Purchased at my dealership: Brunswick Buick Pontiac, 1120 route 18 North, East brunswick NJ, 08816, phone# 732-651-4110, Mr. Jose pascual (service advisor), with original Goodyear Eagle ls tires serial numbers: 0606, 0610, 0615, 0623 on the vehicle. At approx. 41593 miles, my right front tire went flat in my driveway. I brought the car to the above dealership and was told that a gash approx. 5" long on the 'interior caused by a displacement of the tires steel belt, and upon further inspection by the service rep., I was told that the other three tires were on the verge of a similar failure. Had the failure not happened in my driveway but on the highway I might not be writing this. I contacted a Mr. Tom D. at Goodyear (732-821-4700) reference # 671401, and was told to bring all four tires to a Goodyear dealer which I did and was told the deterioration was due to normal wear and tear, but I told Goodyear that no-one would buy these tires with the knowledge that the belts would come apart at approx. 40000 miles. I conveyed their comments to the dealership who did not agree with this conclusion and is holding the four tires for a G.M. representative to inspect the tires. It was necessary for me to replace the tires prematurely at my expense as I had more normal use of the existing tire rubber. I am seeking: 1- reimbursement for the cost $409.53 of the tire replacements from Goodyear, and 2- to apprise your Agency of this condition as recommended by a Buick G.M. customer service representative Ms. Kellly bristol, phone # 866-952-4368, X58036, service request # 1-172024374, so that any other persons having similar tires can have them examined for possible defects.

Severe tread separation on left front. Other three tires showed start of deterioration. Good year dealer contacted the manufacturer and immediately replaced all four tires, adjusting them at 50% rear and 45% front. If defect had not been caught, severe injury could have occurred. Since all four tires were defective, I suspect that this is not an isolated incident. I have digital pictures of one defective tire. (dot number: M6X0bmwr50 tiresize: P22560R16)
