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.

2013 Chevrolet Volt Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 242015


  • 17,000 miles


My Volt was purchased new with the Goodyear assurance fuel max tires. At only 17,000 miles, I experienced a blow-out and complete flattening of a rear tire while gently slowing to only 25 mph in a straight line on a local Suburban street. There was no debris in the road. The blow-out left the tire with a hole the size of a pencil. Consequently, it was not reparable and had to be replaced at my expense. This tire was defective and should have been covered under but of course, was not. I would not recommend these tires.

Volt 4-cyl

  • 10,000 miles
I've leased my 2013 Volt for 1 1/2 years. July 3rd I got 2 flat tires (both driver side, rear and front). I bought 2 new tires and the service at Chevy put them on the 2 front wheels. Exactly 2 months later, I got 2 more flat tires (passenger side, front and rear). I find it incredibly hard to believe that 4 new tires are now flat. I've been driving for 40 years and have owned many different new cars, and this has never happened! I feel there is something either about the car being electric or the type of tires that is causing flats. Besides being very expensive, it is also very unsafe to drive on flat tires.
