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 have a 2002 E350 Ford ext sd van that came with oem Goodyear Wrangler ht lre 245/75R/16 tires. The veh was obtained new in June 2002. Since new the tires sidewalls were cracked and dry, after driving on them a while the sidewalls had minor bulges, and more cracks. The tires were rotated/bal/and proper psi at all times and were never overloaded. The tires were replaced with Michelin ltx/ms at 33K miles. These tires should have been replaced under a "safety improvement campaign" by Goodyear at their expense (NHTSA campaign id nr 02X001000 dtd 28 Jan 2002). I was not notified and the "campaign" expired, leaving me to replace the tires at my expense. By not notifing me Goodyear saved a bundle but it left me in danger of a possible blowout/tread seperation or even a crash. When I did find out about the replacement campaign I went to my local Goodyear dealer and all they offered was to sell me the same tire at an inflated price compared to sam's club or wal-mart. Needless to say I will not be shopping for Goodyear tires in the future.
