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.

On Feb. 5, 2011 I purchased 4 tires from dobbs Honda on covington pike, memphis, Tennessee. On June 7, one of the tires went flat. I was told that the bead was broken on the tire. I returned the tire to dobbs which promised a refund for the tire, have not received. On August 2, 2011 I received another flat on a tire. I was told the cause of the flat was a broken bead, I again spoke with dobbs representative who stated that someone would call me. The first tire had about 3500 miles on it and the second tire had 4400 miles on it. I complained that I was afraid that the other two tires might also have a defect and wanted the tires replaced. I was told that the service manager would contact me. Dobbs is claiming that it has been almost six months from purchase disregarding the low mileage on the new tires. The service manager after my constant concern regarding the tire safety check the tires saying that the pressure was high and blaming the extreme heat for the problem. When I stated that this does not explain the first tire problem stated that the service manager will call you after five today or tomorrow.

On July 17th, 2010, I had 4 brand new falken zeix ze 912 installed on my car. Approximately 5 miles from the dealership, while driving on the freeway, the front right tire blew out. See ODI number 10344123) today, August 14th, 2010, while driving down the freeway, the left front tire blew out. I had the spare tire put onto the car and drove to the dick hanna Acura of portland, Oregon; the dealership that installed the new tires on July 17th. The dealership reported that they could tell from observation that the car ran over a pot hole which caused the blow out. I explained that I was on the freeway and there were no pot holes. I also stated that it seems bizarre that a tire would not be able to hold up even if there were pot holes on the freeway. I reminded them that it was only one month ago that the right front tire blew out. At this point, the tire will obviously have to be replaced. The dealership did not have the appropriate tire in stock thus still has by car until at least Monday. This appears to be a huge red flag with these tires. I requested that the dealership review the tires and give me a written confirmation that all the tires are safe prior to me picking up my car.

On Saturday, July 17th, 2006, I had routine maintenance completed on my 2006 Honda Accord. The dealership told me that I needed 4 new tires. They installed 4 falken ziex ze 912 tires along with a front end alignment. I left the dealership, got onto to the freeway and my brand new right front tire exploded when I was traveling at 55 miles per hour. I immediately contacted the dealership and they requested that I have my car towed to them and they would investigate the situation. I spoke with the dealership today (Monday) and they stated that the new tire was defective. They replaced the tire at no charge and reported that they would be sending the tired back to the factory to investigate the defect issue.

Sudden side wall failure of the right front tire of my 2006 Honda Accord. The Michelin tire was original equipment on the car. During low speed driving a hole about 4 inches by 3 inches blew out of the tire. It looks as if the belts are totally detached from the outside rubber of the tire. On looking on the internet I found scores of complaints about similar failures.

2006 Honda Accord windshield is wavy and difficult to see out of. There was also a tire blow out. The consumer contacted the dealer and manufacturer. They both claimed the wavy windshield was due to the aerodynamics.
