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.

On 7/22/09 we purchased 2 new tires and had them installed on the front of our 2006 Chevy 3500 crew cab dually. These were purchased because we were taking a 2000+ mile trip on 7/24. On 7/24 one of these new Michelin tires lt 215/8516 ltz ms blew out - a complete tire failure, while we were on I-44 at high speed. No injuries and no other vehicles involved, but we report this in case it indicates a safety-related defect trend exists.

Tire blows bubble on sidewall, needs to be replaced but Goodyear will only warranty a prorated discount towards purchase of same tire. Happened a second time on different tire June 2, 2008. Tire is at local Goodyear dealership awaiting decision on what happens next.

In Nov. Of 2005 I purchased a Chevrolet Silverado, I have had nothing but problems with it. I have had the rear brakes and rotors replaced 3 times and the front once, also the fuel system had a problem, now they tell me that I need all tires replaced because the compound is bad. My truck only has a little over 7,000 miles on it!

Consumer was sold a 2006 Silverado with engine damages. ***** when the consumer contacted the dealership to tell them what he had discovered wit the engine cowling, they had advised him it was squirrel damage. Even though the dealer acknowledged the problem, they refused to give the consumer another vehicle. The consumer and his family had become sick. They believed it was from the bacteria coming from the venting system. The front tires were out of round and the rims were bent.
