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.

The car was vibrating incessantly. A loud bang, thud heard from the right front tire. Pull off the side of highway 220, southbound, about 10 miles North of hico, tx. The entire rubber around the steel belt was stripped off. The blow out caused damage to the running board and tire wheel area. I purchased these 4 tires on 7/21/11 so there are only 2 yrs old with about 20-25 miles on them. Before this blow out, I actually replaced two of the other tires replaced weeks before. One on of them, the car shook violently and the tire had a giant bulge. 3000 miles later, almost 2 weeks, the second tire started stripping off the rubber and tearing apart. Car shook then too. The third tire (story in first paragraph) completely tore apart before we could get to a safe spot to check it out. When each tire had a noticeable problem, I did the following: 1. first tire: Immediately went to discount tire company for repair 2. second tire: Put on spare (it was July 4th) 3. third tire: Put on spare because tread had separated. One time is fluke, two times is a coincidence, three tires failing within 5 weeks is a definite pattern. Please review these tires.

E-350

  • 10,000 miles
Traveling westbound in hwy 54 East of stratford, tx the left rear tire exploded on our 2008 pleasure-way rv. This rv is built on a Ford E350 chassis. The vehicle immediately became uncontrollable and drifted into the path of an oncoming tractor-trailer. Driver steered vehicle to the right to avoid the oncoming truck, the rv crossed over the road into a ditch on the right, again turned to the left and re-entered the roadway at a sharp angle causing the vehicle to roll onto its right side. Passenger 1 sustained a broken right shoulder and back injuries, passenger 2 sustained a severely sprained wrist. Tire pressure was checked before beginning the trip, and tires were visually inspected at a rest stop 90 minutes before incident. Vehicle was lightly loaded and well below gvwr. These were oem tires with less than 10,000 miles and had always been properly maintained. There was absolutely no warning before the tire failed.
