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.

2002 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

Goodyear tires: I purchased a 2002 Dodge Dakota in June, 2002. From day 1, I had trouble steering. After 3 trips to the dealer, I learned today that the Goodyear tires were defective. I was told to immediately get new tires. The Goodyear dealer was unresponsive to my need. It was obvious that he did not want to deal with defective tires. I went immediately to a Michelin (sp) dealer and purchased 4 new tires. The Michelin folks could insert a car key fully inside splits that were in my tires. I found news reports of abc investigating Goodyear but obviously this is not getting to the public, either through the media or dealers. No incident but only because I took the truck in for an oil change and again complained about difficulty keeping the truck on the road. This complaint is sent in hopes that an investigation will start. I was told that the tires were from a "bad batch". how many tires are in a batch and where are the other tires? please respond and let me know the appropriate actions to take. I was most fortunate because I drive 70 mph on interstate-10 daily. The oil change may have prevented an accident and perhaps my life. Respectfully, patricia hunter
