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.

The tire did not exhibit any leaks prior to the failure and there was no alignment needed. The tire was supposed to be warranted up to 45,000 miles. The manufacturer stated that the tires were not covered under warranty. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage of the tire was approximately 20,000.

I have had several flat tires on the set of bf goodrich tires on my 2001 Cavalier. The tires have not suffered any road damage, but have instead just dry rotted to the point where they go flat as I am driving. This has happened to me at least 4 times and at one point I was give four brand new bf goodrich tires to compensate for the problems that I have. The problems did not stop there and I have since had several flats that took place as I was driving, which as anyone knows is a horrible time to have a flat tire. The tires are unsafe and may eventually lead to a horrible accident.
