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.

Since two of the four tires have now failed I will submit two complaints, one for each tire. Goodyear viva 2 tires bought from walmart on May 31, 2011. P225/60R16 97S dot mdx0 H6hp 1911 tires for my 2001 Buick Regal. After almost a year I noticed the car was not riding smoothly so I took it in to get the tires balanced. The tire man showed me that there was a tread issue on a tire, so on May 9, 2012 I bought a replacement viva 2 tire. The failed tire had less than a year and 17,601 miles on it. Recently while driving on the freeway another of the initial viva 2 tires blew out (same dot code). This tire was about 26 months old with 31,440 miles on it.

I am an auto mechanic and later automotive engineer and I always keep my tires properly inflated with routine balancing, rotation and alignments. In over 30 years of driving I had never had a tire issue beyond the occasional flat until I bought a set of Goodyear viva 2 tires from walmart on May 31, 2011. P225/60R16 97S dot mdx0 H6hp 1911 tires for my 2001 Buick Regal. After almost a year I noticed the car was not riding smoothly so I took it in to get the tires balanced. The tire man showed me that there was a tread issue on a tire, so on May 9, 2012 I bought a replacement viva 2 tire. The failed tire had less than a year and 17,601 miles on it. Recently while driving on the freeway another of the initial viva 2 tires blew out (same dot code). This tire was about 26 months old with 31,440 miles on it. I still have this tire if you want to inspect it.

- the contact called to inform NHTSA that he receive a recall letter from pep boys on his tires, the cooper futura 2000 radial lte, size 225/60/R16. The contact stated that he took his vehicle to pep boys to have them replace the tire because this is a pep boy recall, and they decline to do so. Pep boys stated they were unaware of the recall.

The tires on the car have failed. I have done the all of the scheduled rotations and alingments. The tires "Goodyear Eagle ls (225/60R16) on my 2001 Buick Regal are putting my life at risk when I drive everyday for work. I contacted Buick and they still are making a determination to replace these failed tires, at 23,900 miles. I believe that GM should of tested these tires before they had made the decision to put them on a quite pricy car. Goodyear I believe is at fault for producing such a tire that is a complete failure. I hope that something is done about this problem.
