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.

Ram Van 2500 4WD

I was traveling on the highway at about 65 miles per hour when the steering wheel was jerked out of my hands. The truck began to swerve and vibrate, and I realized a tire had blown out. I did not see anything I could have hit on the road nor did I feel like I had hit anything. I changed the tire and took the blown tire to my local Goodyear dealer who examined it and confirmed that the tire had not been cut or punctured and concluded that I was running low tire pressure and therefore, even though there is only 17% tread wear I was entitled to only a 50% adjustment on the tire. Numer one I check my tire pressures on all my vehicles regularly and keep at least 40 to 42 pounds of air in at all times, and number two what happened to my manufacturers warranty that states a full replacement during the first twelve months of ownership. I have been in the car business for over 25 years and am a Pennsylvania state inspection mechanic and I understand the importance of tire pressure, and that is why I check my regularly. I know in my heart that the tire pressure was not low on this tire and it worries me that it could happen again to another tire on this truck, maybe this time with more dire consequences. I have lost faith in Goodyear, Dodge, and the dealer, and feel totally out of control when driving this vehicle with Goodyear Wrangler. By the way this my first blow out in over 32 years of driving, no matter what my tire pressures were"??" (dot number: M670 jcor tiresize: 245/15R16)

Consumer after being informed about tire recall 01V28900O had taken vehicle to dealer. Manager insisted vehicle was not within recall notice. However, service manager at Michelin stated that all the D rated tires on consumer's Dodge, Ram were low rated, and could only hold a certain weight age that did not match vehicle compliance expectation.

Door jamb sticker call for 41lbs air in tires, tire calls for 35lbs max. Which is correct.
