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.

problem #1

Jul 072003


  • 17,900 miles
Owner of 2001 Dodge Dakota P/U, with Wrangler St tires, at 10000 miles tires cracked around rim, Goodyear store only adjusted the front ones, which he said were cracked. The rear, he called dry rotting, normal wear and tear. The front tires 8000 miles later are cracked. I called westchase tire and auto, in houston, Texas and the store manager mentioned that it was strange that this had occured again. I checked the NHTSA site and found the same type of failures were being reported since several years back. I am positive that neither Goodyear nor Dodge will fess up to any problems with these tires. I just hope that loss of lives do not occur before action is taken. I will have these tires replaced once more and see how long they will last this time.
