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.

Continental tires.....I own 2 vehicles that have come equipped with Continental tires and found that over time both sets of tires have worn out due too poor quality of the tire. I have gone on line and looked up on the web site under Continental tire and clicked on complaints about these tires and it is alarming how many people are finding that the tires from Continental are poorly made and the quality of these tires is putting people in harms way, due to blowouts, tread separation, premature ware. I live in tucson AZ and just about every tire dealer within 20 miles of me wont even recommend a tire built by Continental. Replacing these tires with something different is the only option to be sure you don't have happen to you, what most people have had happen to them, after you read the complaints posted on the web site of Continental tire, I find it necessary to file a complaint about these tires and the company. I feel that someone needs to read the complaints on the web site, and take a look to see if there is something that can be done, to get answers as to why Continental feels that there's no problem with there tires. On my 2005 Ford Ranger the tires had 30,000 miles on them and in the owners manual, the tires had a 6 year pro-rated warranty on them. The tire dealer here in tucson was told by Continental that they didn't cover the tire from normal wear. The dealer explained to Continental that the tires in question were pre-maturely wearing out on the inside edges and the middle of the face of the tire. Continental more less said too bad and wouldn't do any thing about it. This happened on my wife's Ford escape also, and we had replaced her original tires that came on her car, with the same Continental brand, and they only lasted 23,000 miles. These tires were rated for 50,000. I not sure what can be done about this, but I feel people need to let some consumer complaint groups know there is a problem that exists here.
