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 have had 3 tire blow outs in the short time I have had this truck due to the tires rubbing on a part of the steering when making turns. Its rubs off the material of the tire.....also the rear passanger door can not be opened from the inside and bearly opens from the outside. I have a young child making this extremely dangerous. Your site wants me to enter a date... I can't recall all three dates

I was driving on the interstate at 65mph when my left rear tire blew a flat. When I came to a stop safely, the tire was completely separated on the sidewall and the tire was smoking! couldn't believe my eyes. I've now been reading that this Michelin tire was recalled in other sizes. This event occurred on 8/17/2016 and the tire had 35,000 miles on it.

I purchased a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport tract I didn't get to test drive it because there were other vehical surrounding it. When I finally got to drive my truck home I noticed the transmission had a severe issue. When I turned a corner my tires rubbed badly on some other part to the trucks parts and the driver seat has a medal rod that jabs me in the back that's coming thru the fabric now my battery has leaked acid every where in the battery compartment and surrounding areas.
