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 Continental contratrac 265/70R17 tires on my 2003 Ford Expedition have stress cracks on the sidewalls. So far, three out of four. Have 25,000 miles on it. Am now going back and forth between Continental, the Ford dealer, and tire dealer. Continental does not seem to want to consider this a defect. However, my son's Expedition-identical and purchased same day as mine, now has one tire doing same thing.

Right rear Continental conitrac tire on 2003 Ford expedtion blew at highway speed(65-67mph). Highway condtions were normal. Ford dealer examined tire and could find no foregin object to cause sidewall blowout. They sent it to the manufacturer, who determined same thing. Ford/dealer reimbursed me for the new tire, but did not do anything about the other 3, which those tires concern me that they may blow at any time.

Continental Contitrac TR - P265-70R-17 sidewall came completely apart and almost caused a tragedy. My family is not safe with these tires on my new Expedition - found out Continental had a recall in 2002 and wanted to let you know of another problem - Ford would not replace my tires - only the one that could have killed my family. There is no damage to the tread - the tire just completely seperated in 2 pieces. I would like to send a picture if possible, and would give you the tires for testing.

While traveling on smooth dry pavement, the right rear tire suddenly exploded. Both the inside and outside sidewalls were blown out. This was a new original equipment tire with less than 8000 miles on it. The car had just been serviced by the dealership within the last three weeks and all tires were properly inflated.
