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.

Re: tires Michelin xcx/apt 215/70 R16 dot hnxo ekfx 4405 when putting air in my tires on 3/21/2015 I found all four tire sidewalls had a lot of cracks (one inch and bigger) plus a lot of other tire failure problems. These were not notice by Honda dealer garage on tire rotation that was performed within the last six months. Neither had I notice this since that rotation, the tire tread on these tires are still good. I am aware that there were no recall and these tires have "expired" so to speak. My concern is that Michelin tires had not warned me of this possible problem putting my family, myself and others on the road in danger. I want Michelin to replace those tires. Anyone else having these tires should be told. I have photos.
