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.

Bought this Honda in 1999 new (1998 leftover model)only had 12,000 miles on it noticed tires cracking brought it to factory authorized Firestone store and they want me to give them some money for new set of tires. They want to replace them with same Bridgestone/Firestone tires, which I feel unsure about as what if they are defective again after 2yrs. And crack again. I feel they should give me money to buy another brand of tires. Please help in view of recent recall on other Bridgestone tires. Bridgestone dueler H/T 684 #205/70R15

On Dec 18, 2000 about 5:00pm my wife geeta rastogi was driving home from work. She was waiting at the traffic light on md highway 28 in rockville to turn left on to darnestowne rd. When traffic light changed for her to move and turn left, she heard a big blast and her front left wheel jumped the curve. She with great difficulty drove to a safe place on the right hand side, got out of the car and found that her left front tire had blown a 2"X4" piece. A montgomery county police woman and a citizen helped geeta to replace the tire with full size spare. We bought a new tire of same type and size from a local olson tire store next day. I would like to know if NHTSA has received any other complaints about this tire from other consumers. Thanks. (tiresize: 205/70R/15)( dot number: Tire size: 205/70R/15 )
