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.

Even before I reached 10,000 miles on my car I had to have all 4 tires replaced because the original ones were cupping. I was told that because I had not rotated the tires any warranty would be voided.

The car had excessive road noise after 8,000 miles. Checking the rear tires I found that both ha numerous flat spots. Took it to the Honda dealer and got the same response that other complaints I have read. I was asked if I pulled the emergency brake while driving. I was told it was a tire issue and to talk to a Bridgestone dealer. The tire dealer told me that the tires that come on the car aren't the best quality and I should replace them with a better pair. There was nothing they could do because they said it due to lack of tire rotation. I have never had an issue with tires wearing like this even after not rotating tires on other vehicles. I have replaced the tires with new michelins at my expense. I will have them rotated at each oil change. I would like to think that Honda and it's tire suppliers would address this issue. This is my 5th Honda since 1990 and will be my last and the last time I buy bridgestones.

I am currently having issues with the rear tires on my 2006 Honda Civic ex. Once my vehicle reached roughly 17,000 miles, I started to hear excessive road noise coming from the rear tires. Not thinking much about it, at roughly 20,000 miles, the sound was getting worse. I made an appointment at the local Honda dealership and they told me that my rear tires had a flat spot on each tire. They said that it looked like someone had pulled the emergency brake at high speed. I drove it for 500 miles more and could not take the loud humming coming from the rear of my vehicle. At this point I decided to replace the tires. The mechanic said that it looks like there is an issue with the suspension. There were many (8) flat spots on only the rear tires.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic hybrid. While driving 60 mph, the contact heard road noise. The dealer stated that the rear tires were unevenly worn, but was unable to determine the cause of failure. The dealer advised the contact to not rotate the tires. The current mileage is 22,652 and failure mileage was 22,300. The consumer stated he has reason to believe the problem is the battery pack(between rear seat and trunk) is causing the rear tires to wear unevenly. Updated 07/10/07

My 2006 Honda Civic ex had approximately 20000 miles on it as of 3/20/07. I bought it new over a year ago at about 10000 miles. I started hearing noises coming from the rear. I took it to the dealer, who informed me that the two rear tires had flat spots. They asked me if I had driven with the emergency brake on. I did not drive it with the emergency brake on. They told me they could not help me, and asked me to call Bridgestone to see if it would be covered under tire warranty. Bridgestone told me it was a vehicle issue, and would not help me. I then took it back to the same Honda dealer 1000 miles later and paid $45 for them to tell me I needed new rear tires. That was dumb on my part considering I knew that, but I was hoping it would be a warranty issue. I asked them what I would do if the same thing happened again, he said it probably wouldn't happen again. They wanted $425 for two rear tires plus an alignment. I said no, and took it to sullivan tire, who replaced all four tires with superior good year tires for under $425. The one thing worth noting, they said the vehicle did not need an alignment, and therefore did not do one nor did they charge me for one. I asked how the rear tires became so choppy, and they said maybe it wash suspension issue or design flaw. I have no idea what was going on, but I will wait now to see if the something happened to the Goodyear tires.
