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.

I drive a 2004 Ford Expedition eb with contential Contitrac SUV P265R70 17 tires. Dec 2004 (2) two of the tires had to be replaced due to cracks/tears in the sidewalls, the vehicle had 17K miles. At that time I was told my other tires are fine. I have 22K miles on the vehicle now, and a tire has developed cracks and "chips" and the connection between sidewall and tread. These tires are a serious problem waiting to hurt the public.

Expedition

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,100 miles
In February 2004, we purchased an expedtion from world Ford in stone mountain, Georgia. The vehicle has 8100 miles to date. On June 6, 2004, at approximate 3:00 pm, my children and I were enroute to a birthday party and a tire (rear right) blew out. I was in the middle of the freeway during major traffic and had to travel less than 1/2 mile to get over and off. I called my husband who came to pick the children and me up. On Monday, June 7, we went to world Ford to talk with them about the matter and was told that the tires that came standard with the truck was not under warranty with them. We explained that when we purchased the vehicle, we were not informed of any outside warranties. They recommended that we go to national tire and battery to have them call the manufacturer. We traveled to ntb and was told by ntb that they have nothing to do with world Ford's custom tire package and could not help us. After going around the world, we finally reached the manufacturer and was told to take it to tires plus. Now we are waiting for tire plus to inform us that Continental will replace the tire.
