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.

Michelin energy mxv4 problems. We were driving on a highway as the one of the rear tire blew out. We pulled over and changed the tires. As I checked the damaged, I noticed a huge crack on the inside part of the tire (no curb damage possible). So we went to a Michelin store to request a warranty exchange (tire had less den 10K miles). The rep said it seemed to be a common problem with this kind of tire and he will try to get us a warranty exchange. But because of Michelin denying the problem, we prob. Wont get the tire exchanged. So we bought a new single tire for $200.16. We are very upset...

On two separate occasions, I had a blow-out while driving my 2006 Honda Accord SE. The first incident was roughly in March of 2006, and the second one November 16, 2006. In both instances, the car was traveling on a straight road at about 65 mph both blow-outs occurred on the passenger side, the first one front and the second rear. The first blow-out nearly put me into the guard rail and caused damage to the alloy rim. The other blow-out did not cause any loss of control. Both blow-outs occurred accompanied by a loud sound, not sure if it was from the release of air or the rim slamming to the highway at 65 mph. Both blow-outs resulted in a gaping hole in the sidewalls of the tires. The initial failure happened with 3000 miles on the car and the second with 9000 miles. All 4 tires constantly appear to be low on air although within the recommended psi range. Neither tire could be repaired and both tires needed to be replaced. I have spent $400 replacing these damaged tires on a car that is less than a year old.

Driving our 2 month old 2006 Honda Accord sedan ex special edition on a stretch of smooth road the right front tire suddenly and without warning lost air. We had not seen anything in road, hit a pothole or curb or anything else. There was no indication that anything influenced the tire to blow. Upon inspection of the tire a 1.5 inch hole was in the sidewall. There was nothing in the road that could have caused this event. Fortunately, we were able to pull off the road out of traffic and change the tire without further complications. Two Michelin authorized tire companies told me that we must have hit something that caused the puncture and that Michelin would not offer any warranty on the tire. I was stunned that this could be possible on a 2 month old tire with less than two thousand miles on it and without any identifiable event that might have caused the tire to fail. I am very pleased that there was no resulting crash but I am not happy that I had to spend almost $200 to replace a tire on my new car when I believe there was not any way I could have avoided it. If I had hit a pothole, curb or anything, if there was evidence of something in the road or even if I had been driving aggressively I could understand it, but there is no reason in my mind that this tire should have failed nor should I have had to purchase a replacement. I am now concerned about the other 9 Michelin tires on our Honda ( we purchased two Accord in July) and our safety while driving the cars.
