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.

Colorado 4WD 5-cyl

Tire blowout at a slow speed, defective plastic fasteners, vibration, shimming could be caused by faulty tires that have more than one crease on the sides.

problem #1

Jul 282004

Colorado 4WD 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,400 miles
I was driving my 2004 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 4X4 in the passing lane on rt. 460, when the rear passenger side tire ( general ameritec TR P265/75-150) blew out, the whole side blew out. I was barely able to keep the vehicle under control. The tire wrapped itself around the hub and I injured my back trying to get it off. This tire seems too light duty for a pick-up, the side walls are very, very thin. Anyway, this tire only had 7400 miles on it when it blew out and neither the manufacture, nor the dealer would replace it. I ended up paying for a new one myself. But, like I said, I don't think this is a suitable tire for this vehicle.
