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.

2011 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

I had just purchased this Camaro in February, not knowing that these tires were not to be used in cold weather. We had some very cold weather in the last part of February and I decided to take the Camaro to work. When I entered the paved road it started to spin the tires on the pavement. There was no moisture on the roads and no reason to loose traction. When I got home I researched this problem on line and found out about the tires being warm weather tires only. I think Chevrolet should replace the tires with all weather tires. Ps tires were not listed I had to use unknown or other to be able to use this site. Thanks

Summer tires come standard with vehicle. Temperature 38 degrees tires loose all handling capabilities. Numerous other Camaro owners have lodged complaints and can be found on internet. These tires are dangerous.

While driving at a speed of 45 mph, my 2011 Camaro with perelli P zero, 275/40-ZR20 06Y left tire blew out from hitting a pair of needle nose pliers in the road. The pliers went completly through the tread and I heard a pop as if the tire had been shot. The vehicle swerved approximately 30 degrees to left then back to the right violently. I was in the center lane of a 3 lane highway and no other vehicle was on either side of the Camaro. It was difficult to regain control of the vehicle due to the immediate loss of tire pressure. This incident was reported to Chevrolet on 15 July 2011 by letter. It occurred in tucson Arizona.

Summer only tires sold as factory equipment on 2011 Camaro. These tires provided no traction when I was caught in a snowstorm on the way to work. In only 1 to 2 inches of snow I could barely maintain control at 11 mph while other cars passed me like I was sitting still. I find it painfully frustrating that in a country where I must wear a seatbelt "for my protection", that a car company can sell a vehicle with such dangerous tires.

The tires on my 2011 Chevy Camaro (and other models) are perelli P-zero tires which are "summer" tires as indicated by the manufacturers. These tires are not recommended for near freezing temps. The auto manufacturer failed to inform me the tires (which are stock) are only recommended for warm weather. I believe the manufacturer has not informed most customers of the situation. My research indicates these tires exhibit more problems with handling in cold temps as tire wear increases. The manufacturer of the auto has indicated to me that their engineers are confident these tires are safe, but the tire manufacturer continues to recommend against using these tires in near freezing temps. As most of the Continental usa is exposed to near freezing and below freezing temps, I am concerned these tires will result in crashes which could be avoided if the auto manufacturer provided proper tires for our climate. This is a problem which may go unnoticed as most accidents go un-investigated or an investigator will not consider the temps were near or below freezing at the time of the accident.

2011 Camaro tires do not grip the road properly & low temperatures like here in N.Y. during the winter months. I just purchased this vehicle & at no point was I told that the tires are for summer use only. This is my only vehicle & has to be used all year round. I did not think spending top dollar for a performance vehicle was going to mean that I could only operate it safely 8 months out of the year"?? this vehicle was shipped to NY, to be sold in NY! why would this happen" the tires cannot be trusted & I fear it will cause someone there life.
