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.

2004 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

The complaint is in regard to the bf goodrich rugged trail T/a LT265/75R16 tires as supplied on my Ford Excursion vehicle. I had to replace the tires prematurely due to large cracks opening up on the side-walls of all 4 tires, in fact pieces of rubber starting flaking off of the side-walls. I was afraid that I was setting my self up for a blow out during my many trips from ky to Chicago. At the tire dealer-ship where I had them replaced they wondered why I was replacing them, until I pointed out all of the cracks. Tread life appeared good, but the side-walls sure lacked the same ability.
