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.

Sierra 2500

  • 12,225 miles
I own a 2009 GMC Sierra 2500 pickup with 12,000 miles. As I was driving to work today the left front tire blew out. The side wall of the tire was where the blow out occurred. I had not hit anything and the tire monitoring system had not come on until after the tire blew out. There is no sign of any damage or reason for the tire side wall to fail. I went to a Bridgestone dealer, they inspected the tire and agreed there was no sign of any exterior damage to the tire. They then contacted Bridgestone by telephone. Bridgestone stated that the only assistance would be a 15% discount on a new tire. I feel that this in very unfair.
