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.

Sidewall failure: Firestone precision touring, P225-60R16 M+S. dot:8xx0 R3D. The tire was sitting in driveway for a couple of weeks. I noticed the tire pressure went down to about 10 pounds. I filled the tire back up to 36 pounds. Two days later the tire was again down to about 15 pounds. I refilled the tire, went to have the tread checked for a puncture. Nothing found. The next morning the tire was flat. On refilling the tire, I felt and heard air escaping from the tire. I felt around and found about a 3/4 to 1 inch split in the sidewall. There was no [hysical damage to the tire, it was the left front tire. I am thankful this happened now, as we were planning to take a trip to Alaska through Canada in a couple of months. 2002 Chevrolet Impala.

Purchased 2, Goodyear Eagle ls, P225/60R-16 tires to replace original Goodyear GT's at 27,000 miles on a 2002 Impala. After driving on the ls for about a month and extremely dissatisfied with the thumping and boom, boom, boom noises and feel of the ride...., I took them to the tire dealer who said he would put them on the machine that tests for defects. Both tires failed the test. The dealer said it was very unusual to have both tires fail. They replaced them at no cost with identical tires. The replacements unfortunately acted the same way. I did not want to go through the testing again, so I just paid to have 2 new Michelin hydroedge's installed. Of course I could not add 2 new tires to the front of my vehicle with another brand of tire, so I had to purchase another 2 michelins at an additional cost of $251. With the new michelins installed, the ride and handling was beautiful. Something is dreadfully wrong with the Goodyear Eagle ls's.

The vehicle's gas tank would not fill because air had gotten in the tank. The dealer has been notified. One must hold the gas nozzle away from the filler tube and restrict the flow. The tire and fuel system/tank/injectors were replaced. There was a rattle sound coming from the engine due to the injectors the vehicle would stall. After the engine is hot, the next time the vehicle would turn over but no start and run rough. The fuel gauge fluctuated(not giving actual amount). The solenoid was replaced due to hanging by the hose retainer. Scc
