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.

Purchased and had mounted (4) Goodyear assurance tripletred tires on or about 15apr2015 by Ford dealer. 90,000 mile maintenance, including routine tire rotation was completed by same dealer on 24jun2016. No damage or defects were noted by the dealer at that time. On 02jul2016, while driving on the the interstate at approximately 65mph, I noticed the low air pressure light come on and slowed my speed to 60 mph. Within a few miles, I heard a thumping noise of a flat tire and pulled off onto the shoulder and awaited road assistance from aaa. Aaa inspected the tire and saw no damage other than the sidewalls had blown, and suspected a defective tire. I took the defective tire to the Ford dealer on 05jul2016 who also inspected and found no damage. The dealer kept the defective tire and I am awaiting further instruction from the dealer who has filed a report with Goodyear. These tires had approximately 20,000 miles when this happened. I do not feel safe and fear continuing to drive on the three remaining Goodyear assurance tripletred tires.
