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.

I purchased two Goodyear integrity tires on 6/10/11 from duncan's auto repair in lincolnton, nc. Yesterday, 8/7/11, I drove less than 5 miles from my home to pick up dinner and back home (all on hard surface roads). There was no debris in the road, I did not run off the side of the road, and I did not hit anything. When I pulled into my garage and turned the car off, I heard a hissing noise and found that my tire was rapidly going flat. My husband took the tire off and found that the inside sidewall on the right front tire was split in three places. He put the spare tire on so that I could go to duncan's auto repair immediately the next morning. I did some online research prior to taking the tire to the shop where it was purchased and saw multiple complaints for sidewall splits in Goodyear integrity tires. I have three other Goodyear integrity tires on my car, all less than a year old. I am concerned about similar incidents. Thankfully I was not going above 55 mph and did not have my two children with me. A serious accident could have occurred if I had been going faster or was further from home.

Me and a co worker purchased Goodyear regatta 2 tires approximately 2 years ago. Both of our vehicles have developed unsafe tire out of round conditions that make it very difficult to drive our vehicles safely. Both tire sets have under 20,000 miles on them. Goodyear has been unresponsive to complaints and I feel these tires are dangerous. There have been reports of blowouts due to sidewall failure at highway speeds with these tires. I believe they should be recalled immediately.

While on a trip to attend a wedding in grand rapids, Michigan, we experienced a sidewall blowout of a Bridgestone turanza EL42 (21565R16 98T) on our 2006 Dodge Caravan. The blowout occurred pulling into a parking place at a low angle, at a low speed, and with a relatively low curb height┐ just pulling in at walking speed. This is the second Bridgestone turanza EL42 that has been replaced on a car that had 13,278 miles on the odometer at the time of the incident. The last routine service (12,000 miles) was at 10,970 miles. The first replacement was on 5 November 2007 with 7,107 miles on the odometer. This tire had a pronounced sidewall bubble and was clearly ┐an accident waiting to happen.┐ it was replaced by the dealer, marty cancila Dodge, at our expense despite the ┐tires for life service plan┐ and extended warranty we have on the automobile. At this point, we purchased a tire safety warranty expecting, of course, more difficulties with these tires. Unwilling to trust neither my safety nor the safety of any of my passengers, I proceeded to purchase two new tires. I could not obtain two Bridgestone turanza tires in the grand rapids, mi, area so I purchased two Michelin's of the same size and similar tread pattern. I drove the car home with the turanzas on the front but will have the Michelin's switched to the front to reduce the probability of death, dismemberment, or other pain and suffering due to tire failure. To get some sense of the problem with the turanza tire, I have included a recall notice that I found at the following web site: Bridgestone turanza EL41, P19565R15. The EL42 may be a renamed EL41 which was notorious for blowouts and is now a subject of a class action lawsuit. In other words, lipstick may not transform a pig it to a princess. I kept the failed tire and actually carry the other tire in the car to have a replacement readily available.
