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.

While driving West bound on interstate highway 80 East of imlay, nv at approximately 70 mph in lane #2, the left rear tire lost about 80-85% of it's tread in about 10 seconds, extensively damaging the underside wheel well area near the tire and the body of the vehicle. Control of the vehicle was never lost, although there was veering from side to side and violent loud banging as the tread pieces were hitting the vehicle. The remaining tire carcass did not lose air pressure, and we managed to safely come to a stop on the right highway shoulder. After stopping and determining the extent of damage to the vehicle and that the tire was not flat, we slowly drove about one mile to the next exit, left the highway and changed the tire. The 4 tires had all been properly inflated and had about 11,045 miles on them since all four were purchased in 2012. The tires are B F goodrich, LT265 / 75R16, "rugged terrain T/a". the vehicle is a 2004 Ford F-250 super cab 4X4 pickup truck.

2004 Ford F-250. Consumer writes in regards to the definity Dakota A/T system failure the consumer stated on four separate occasions the tires failed from an out-right blow out or the condition where the tire had started to bulge and deform or split which caused tread separation. One incident left the fender on the vehicle distorted and shifted out of place as well as some trim damage. The most recent incident occurred where the tire had become so mis-shaped and distorted that when the mechanic pulled the tire off the truck, he could not roll the tire. The tire had serious structural damage.

Truck failed to respond to steering. Attempting to correct for right drift truck crossed over left shoulder causing damage. Vehicle failed to respond to steering while consumer drove around a curve at 35 mph. After inspecting the vehicle the consumer found that the right front hub locking tab was positioned in lock while the left front was free. The tires were marked on the sideways as M & S (mud and snow) tires were over inflated for the load condition. While attempting to correct thfor the right drift the truck crossed over to the left shoulder crossing the two lane road hitting a fence and on the subsequent crossover hit a berm and rolled across the highway ending up with the right side in a ditch.
