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.

There's a separation on the side of the tire. General tire, 17235/85R16. Four out of six tires had sidewall separations that were serious. Ford finally declared four of the six as being defective and replaced them. Cosnumer was having the vehicle checked when the claims adjuster pointed out that the two front tires had tread separation deep enough for a dime to fit 1/8th of an inch. The separations were two to four inches in length. The two outer back tires also have tread separation but not as deep as the front two. Ford trys to characterize the defects as unusual tread wear. The defects were actually sidewall separations. Consumer was only partially reimbursed for the defects.
