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 precept touring tires at discount tire in July. I have had to have 10 of them replaced since that time. They are terrible tires and I have wasted not only a considerable amount of money but time as well. Every last one of them has a bad spot in it--they have all vibrated--and my car has perfect alignment. I even had everything checked out by my own mechanic after several trips to discount. My mechanic said he refuses to sell Goodyear because they have had so many problems with the tires. A mechanic from sam's club said the same thing--don't buy Goodyear. I only wish I had known this before I purchased the tires; the consumer products websites don't have this information...yet. Am not even sure the tires are safe.please do not use any of my contact info for any type of advertising or promotional purposes.

While drive from philadelphia pa to linthicum, md on I-95, my driver's side tire - which is 6 weeks old - blew out. My tire was not improperly inflated nor was I approaching or exceeding the manufacturer's recommended speed rating. Having to cross 4 lanes of traffic to safety, during rush hour on an interstate was more than hazardous, however I was able to control the vehicle preventing injury to myself, my passenger, or other commuters. I contacted the dealer where the tire was purchased who informed me that I had no recourse through their establishment or the manufacturer. This doesn't seem to be a legitimate statement considering that this type of defect endangers so many lives. Please investiage this incident and advise me what other course of action is available.

Since purchasing my Sebring in may '98 I have had 6 flat tires. I have never had a flat before. After speaking with other Sebring owners it seems there could be a fault in the soft aluminum wheels. I have just had my second flat in the past 2 weeks and am afraid to get into the car. This is happening on 3 of my wheels, not just the same one. Usually it is a slow leak. I work for the airlines and I am out of the country quite a bit. This makes it even more strange as I probably drive half the miles of anyone else. Since purchasing the car from another person in may '98 I have driven only 15,000 miles. What should I do" thanks. (dot number: " tiresize: Oep215/50R)
