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.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Civic. The vehicle has Bridgestone turanza EL400, size P225/60R16 tires. While driving 40-45 mph, the vehicle would bounce and make a roaring sound. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the two rear tires had to be replaced. The contact was informed that the tread was worn and uneven at an angle because they had not been rotated regularly. The contact has the tires available, if needed. The current mileage was 21,737 and failure mileage was 21,237.

I bought a new 2006 Honda Civic ex and took delivery in July 2006. From the time of delivery of the vehicle, it was noticeable that the rear end or rear tires of the Honda Civic were very noisy. I rotated my tires at each factory recommended oil change. At 30K miles, they were worn out. My service person showed me the uneven wear (flat spots). The road noise is unbearable. I was able to locate a service bulletin from Acura - a division of Honda. The service bulletin 05-076 dated January 19, 2007 stated that the Acura 2004 & 2005 had an issue with "premature rear tire wear". the problem was described as: "the rear tires are wearing prematurely (unevenly across the tread). Probable cause: The rear toe increases when the vehicle is loaded" the description and pictures of tire wear in this service bulletin exactly match what I found in my 2006 Honda Civic. I frequently check the air tire pressure to ensure even wear. There are multiple internet postings noting an issue with the camber/toe adjustments. I believe such premature wear constitutes a definite safety hazard. Honda should do the "right thing" and correct this problem. Putting on new tires will yield the same results without some correction.

I purchase a 2006 Honda Civic for my wife in Oct. 2005 and from the beginning she has complained of a road noise while driving. The noise started out barely audible and has progressively gotten worse with more miles. We brought the car to two Honda dealerships before it had 6000 miles on it and they told us that it was just normal tire noise. After more complaining the local dealership said it was our fault, because we did not rotate the tires frequently enough. When I pointed out to them that they balanced and rotated the tires prior to the required period outlined in the vehicle maintenance records the story changed again. The vehicle now has 19000 miles on it and the noise is horrible and the local Honda dealership now says the rear two tires have separated belts due to the fact that we must have hit a pothole or road debris. I don't really understand how I could have hit a pothole or road debris with just two tires, because last time I checked the front tires were followed by the rear tires. I have also brought this car to a Bridgestone dealer, which is the make of the tires, and he said the tires were cupped due to the car being out of alignment. I then called the customer support line on the tire warranty pamphlet for Bridgestone and was informed that this was a vehicle issue. I am concerned that this is becoming a safety issue even though I have been assured that this will not create a problem other than being noisy. I have received no help from Honda or Bridgestone in this matter other than a bunch of fingerprinting and the offer to sell me new set of tires at a cost of over $600. Everyone agrees that the tires have a problem and are the cause of the noise, but nobody wants to admit responsibility for a defective product.
