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.

problem #1

Nov 222001

Excursion 4WD

  • miles
Traveling at 65mph when right side rear tire sidewall blewout causing the vehicle to swerve. Managed to slow down and proceeded to stop on the shoulder of the highway. Sidewall completely disentegrated. Tread still intact. Local Firestone retailer ruled out road hazard and confirmed sidewall failure, suggested pro rating tire for replacement but later advised against replacement due to the damage sustained to the vehicle as a result of the blowout. Refered me to Firestone technical services for damage claim. (dot number: Vnw81X0510 tiresize: 265/75R/16)
