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. Notes: While the 2005 GMC Canyon doesn't show any major complaint trends, it's mechanically-identical counterpart is the Chevy Colorado which has some engine problems.

I purchased 4 cooper tires 8/18/10. I started noticing a problem in 1/11. The side walls would become very dark black about 2" down from tread.then I noticed the truck not driving right. Sensation of being stuck in 4 wheel drive. Altough it was not stuck in 4 wheel. I asked many people today I had a mechanic look at them. His response was feel these lumps on the tread. This is where belts have snapped inside the tires all 4 of them!!the side walls are slightly bulged and was told it would only be a matter of time before I will have a blow out. I saved for these tires for 1 yr. Cooper atr OWL 31X10.50 R15 lt. Please help because I can't afford new tires & I'd not want to kill some one on the road..
