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 worked for a tire shop in wal-mart and on 08/09/15 a 2001 Dodge Durango came in for tires. The vehicle placard called for 225/75/15 extra load tires and my management approved for us to put a standard load 235/75/15 tire (brand is dextero made by giti, I didn't select it on the tire selection due to it wasn't listed) on the vehicle. It was directly against company policy and unsafe to put an improper tire on that vehicle. This is the third tire that they put on this vehicle. I wasn't involved in the other two but this last one on Sunday they wanted me to install said tire. I refused to do knowing that it was against our policy and I did not want to put the customer in an unsafe position. They forced another technician to do the work then proceeded to terminate me the next day on 08/10/15. The customer is in current possession of the vehicle that has improper tires against what the vehicle required from the manufacturer.

My daughter was driving my wife and grandson home from an errand. She was on the 202 E bound, getting ready to take the alma school exit, when a blow out occurred. The Dodge Durango (2001) rolled several times. My daughter was only slightly injured and my grandson was not injured. The car is totaled.

I purchased a used 2001 Dodge Durango with Goodyear Wrangler rts P265/70R16 tires, the SUV had approx. 42,000 miles. Shortly after purchase, one front tire began to lose air and wobble. After inspection by the dealer who sold me the car, I was told that it appeared the belt was broken and the full-size spare was used to replace the tire. This second tire seems to be "doing" the same thing. In addition, I now have a rear tire that has a "flat spot" and cooresponding sidewall bulge on it. The car (and I presume, orginal manufacturer equipment tires) have approx. 50,000 miles on them. I wrote to Goodyear, via website, about this condition, but no one has responded.
