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 had an oil change on 9/13/2014 & asked them to rotate my tires at midas at 8016 w. hillsborough ave. Tampa, fl 33615, phone number: 813-886-1177. They said that they couldn't rotate the tires because they had dry rot on them. This prompted me to locate the receipt I purchased these 4 tires new at the same midas location, they were purchased on 02/20/2010 when this vehicle had 44,368 miles on it. Also I looked at each tire to find the date the tires were manufactured & to my surprise it was covered with a rubber seal on each tire. I sent various email to midas' customer service along with the copy of the receipt and pictures of the tires showing the rubber seal. I have read even on your website that it is against the law to cover the manufactured date on tires. Can midas be fined for this and I think they owe me another set of 4 tires because of that? I will enclose attachments of the receipt and pictures of the tires when I receive an email back from you.

I purchased 4 tires from midas on 03/2010 & when I just had an oil change on 09/2014, they said at midas that they couldn't rotate the tires because they had dry rot. I tried to find the manufactured date on the tires and discovered that it was covered with a rubber seal on all 4 tires. My receipt shows that they were manufactured in 2008, which is 2 years before I purchased them. Is this legal for them to conceal the manufactured dates" and is it legal for midas to sell me 2 year old tires" if my receipt is correct or they could have been older than that.
