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 #3

Oct 192001

Expedition

  • miles
While driving on the freeway, the left rear tire tread separated from the sidewall. The tread stayed intact with approximately 2 inches of sidewall extending from the actual tread surface. The separation was clean on the inside and outside, not torn apart. This occurred without any warning at 70 mph, almost causing a roll over. The air pressure was checked (by me personally) the previous weekend. All 4 tires were at 35 psi, and none of the tires had ever required adding of any air pressure. The tires had 4,600 miles on them at the time of the tread separation. The dealer was extremely helpful and replaced the tire and wheel without question. The employee at the dealership who I dealt with said this is a common occurrence and he sees it all the time. I told him that in 22 years of driving that I have never had a tire separation even remotely close to this. Every day when I drive to work (12 miles each way) I see at least 2 new tire treads along the freeway that look exactly like the tread separation that we experienced. We have 6 photos of the tire, the separated tread and wheel, taken on the day of the incident, if needed.
