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 contact owns a 2005 Ford Five hundred. The contact noticed that contritract touring ct 95 tires, size P215/60 R17 were missing chunks of rubber. There were 6,000 miles on the tires. The dealer was unable to diagnose the failure, and the tires were replaced. Approximately six months later the contact once again noticed missing chunks of rubber. The newly replaced tires had 2,000 miles on them. The manufacturer stated that it was normal wear and tear. The contact stated that the vehicle was only driven on paved roads. The current and failure mileage were 8,000.

Five Hundred 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,568 miles
While conducting a weekly inspection and pressure check of my tires, (Continental contitouring contact as P215/60R17) a split measuring approximately 2" in length was observed in the sidewall of one tire. The split does not appear to be caused by any road damage or other external force. There is no air leakage associated with the split. The car has been taken out of service and new tires have been ordered to replace this set.
