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.

E-150 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,214 miles


: the contact stated while driving 70 mph on normal road conditions, a loud noise came from the rear driver side tire. After a visual inspection, it was noticed the tire tread had separated. After 500 miles, the same problem recurred to the front passenger side tire. The tire distributor was contacted without a positive response from the corporate office. The tire manufacturer referred the contact to the distributor where the tires were purchased. The tires were sold with 60000 miles trouble free guarantee. The contact was very concerned because of the serious safety risk involved in both incidents. Updated 12/28/2006 -
