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.

Three out of four tire valves cracked and leaked air during long highway trips. There was no sudden failure and no accidents occurred. The problem was corrected by replacing the tire valve and reinflating the tire.

2007 Ford Freestyle. Consumer states a vibration/ noise coming from the front end of the vehicle the consumer took the vehicle to the dealer to have the vibration/noise inspected. However, the dealer stated there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. The consumer returned to the dealer because the front end noise had worsened. The dealer informed the consumer that all four pirelli P6 tires were cupped with flat spots. The damage was on the inside edge only of all four tires. The consumer also stated the tires were regularly balanced and rotated. Upon research, the consumer learned the pirelli P6 tires Ford installed at the factory had been problematic when used on the 2005/2007 Ford Freestyles. The report described the exact same problem and showed a typical wear pattern that he experienced with his vehicle. After 2 1/2 years, the dealer confirmed the noise was indeed coming from the tires. The consumer stated the question still remains at which caused the problem; the tires or the suspension.

I purchased a new 2007 freeystyle, I have just under 17,000 miles. My Continental tires are weather checked. My Ford dealer says I have to pay 60% of new tires along with balancing, disposal, etc. I am very concerned about the safety of the tires. Also, they say I have to put the same brand back on.
