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.

2001 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 300 miles


I purchased 2 brand-new bf goodrich traction T/a tires - 225/55/R16 95H tires on or about 09/0109. 3 days later, with approximately 300 miles on these tires, I experienced a blowout on one of them due to sidewall failure. Tire was replaced with same tire and 2nd tire was inspected and I was told it was fine. On 10/08/09 I experienced a blowout of the 2nd of the 2 original tires, again due to sidewall failure. I do not have the dot number from the 1st tire, but the dot number/id from the 2nd tire is: Be6rmc11.

Tires that were purchased Feb 2004 with 25/30 K on them dry-rotted to the point they could not be balanced and were a safety issue. Original tires were Goodyear american Eagle GT size P225/5516bw.. these tires were not parked on anything that could cause a moisture issue and they were never cleaned without proper cleaning materials.

While driving 45-50 mph, passenger rear tire disintegrated from vehicle, however consumer was able to pull to the side of the road. Goodyear inspected tire and advised there was a small puncture which caused tire to lose pressure and disintegrate. Consumer's family member suffered back injuries as a result of the accident. Consumer is very concerned about the safety of the 3 remaining tires because window sticker stated vehicle should have 16 inch tires, but this vehicle has 17 inch tires. Tire size 245/445zr17/original tires/tire mileage-5300mi/dot number M68rfc2R4700.
