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.

I purchased Firestone F380 P235/75R15 tires for my vehicle. I see that there is a recall on these tires. My tire was produced before the recalled tires but is having very uneven & unsafe wear. The dot# is dot wbhl 380 2805. I feel that my tires are defective and want the manufacturer to replace them as part of the recall.

On July 22, 2005, I paid the dealer $615.74 to replace a shorted air pump. I brought it in since the light gauges were turning on. The "check engine" lighted on and off. One week later, the A/C stopped working. The dealer charged me $105.19 for the diagnosis. On Aug. 10, I paid another shop $852.08 to replace the A/C compressor. On Aug. 30, my S-10 stalled and hasn't worked since then. A mechanic said the engine has to be replaced (another $3000 +) due to overheating of the radiator. There was no prior indication that the radiator was leaking or heating except when the light gauges were turning on in July. I bought this truck brand new in 2000 and have spent over $7000 in repairs and regular maintenance since then. The battery acid has leaked. Brake pads keep wearing out. Several air injection malfunctions and pumps have been replaced. I've purchased at least 2 sets of tires. It has less than 72,000 miles.

When applying ABS brakes vehicle intermittently pulls to right or left, cause unknown. Dealer first replaced brake hoses, however problem occurred again, dealer then filed calipers and aligned front end, this helped some but still did not correct problem, consumer removed ABS fuse and vehicle did not pull when braking anymore, consumer told dealer about this, dealer replaced ABS module and valve, replaced calipers, and problem still exists. Inside mirror replaced, it would not adjust. 3 uniroyal tires were out of round and were replaced, size P205/75R158, tires caused vibration and shaking.
