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.

Took my truck to the dealership and was advised my tires were almost bald...had only 16,900+ miles. Dealership replace tires, but not the same type. Yes, same brand, Bridgestone dueller A/T. also dealership did a realignment. Truck never rode the same after the alignment and the new tires. Dealership replaced two on the back after my mechanic noted they were egg shaped. This still did not correct the problem. Tires given to me were bad and the dealership would not correct. Took it to another dealership and their GM rep wrode with me and noted the truck running rough from the tires. Ordered a road force balancing on the tires. This did not work also. Now this dealership will look at my vehicle an further. Truck is still under warranty. Did take it to tire service center and they said the tires are bad and truck needs realignment and also a check of the front end. Advisor stated he could feel every divot in the road, which is not normal. Faxed their report to the local GM rep and he refuses to acknowledge the problem. Neither dealership will even look at the problem. I am afraid for the safety of my family. Can you help me?

Had a tire blow out on the passengers side. This happened on September 18, 2005. Contacted the manufacturer of trailer, and they repaired it. However, the insurance company paid for it. Took the tire to the mechanic at dealership, and he saw no reason why this happened. The tire was not dry rotted and of the tread came off.
