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.

The contact owns a 2001 GMC Yukon. The contact stated that the tires are replacement equipment. In 2004, she purchased four brand new tires when the vehicle was at 50,000 miles. When the tires reached 25,000 miles, each of them failed one by one and had to be replaced. The tires had a hole in them and the radial cord separated in one spot. She again purchased four new tires of the same brand and on June 19, 2007, one of the tires failed and had to be replaced. The tires are Continental sport lt/SUV, P26/70R16. The correct tire size was unavailable in the drop down menu at the time of this complaint. The VIN, engine size, and purchase date were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 75,000.

I purchased 4 new Continental-made tires for our 2001 GMC Yukon. These tires carry the "general" brand name, model P265-70R16, grabber aw, dot# A3723J82301. I purchased these tires with an understanding that they are warranted against defects and any damage occurring as a result would be covered by the tire company. I have properly maintained these tires throughout my ownership of them. After a little more than a year after purchase, one of the tires unexpectedly and suddenly blew up, causing me to lose control of the vehicle, barely missing an embankment and concrete bridge column. Upon inspection of the tire immediately thereafter, I saw that the tread had completely ripped off the top of the tire. As a result of this, the loose tread was "slapping" every part of the vehicle in the surrounding area causing over $4,000 worth of damage, including, body damage, tailpipe damage, electrical wires cut, A/C lines cut, tail light severed, running boards broken and more. Immediately after, I contacted Continental and filed a claim to be reimbursed for this damage. After a lengthy wait, I was informed on January 26, 2005 that they were denying my claim due to a small tire puncture. It is my contention that a small puncture should not cause the tire to absolutely explode the way mine did. Furthermore, Continental claims there were other defects in the tire, such as sidewall damage, that were all caused as a result of the accident, and not the other way around. It has since become clear to me that Continental has had the same sort of blowouts on similar models. See: www.consumeraffairs.com/news03/Continental.html I would like the company to reimburse me for all damages made to my vehicle and also refund my money for all the tires so that I can purchase a set from a different manufacturer so that my family's safety on the road can be better assured.

A loud grinding noise was heard coming from the rear. Vehicle was taken to a tire garage for inspection, and mechanic determined that a rock gravel was trapped inside of the tread, and the rocks would cut groves inside of the alloy wheels. This caused loss of air pressure from the tires.
