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.

Goodyear tire (size- P215-70-R16) Wrangler-hp-99S stock on 2004 Honda Element -4WD-ex-4at. Flat tire on interstate, traveled less than 1/4 mile after tire deflated. Changed tire went directly to residence about 2.5 miles. I inflated the tire once I reached my residence to observe any air flow coming from a foreign object that I may have encountered on the interstate. Nothing noticeable in tread area. I turned the tire over to look at the back side of the tire and noticed 6 ripples(bubbles) on the tire. Tire destroyed. I actually called 14 different tire stores and every store informed me that this tire was not a stock item and asked me "why would I put these tires on my vehicle?" I said I didn't, this was a stock tire when I bought the vehicle in March,2005. Anyways, to make a long story short( no one) had this tires. Not even the car dealer criswell Honda." Everyone, " "everyone will have to special order them." So may I add if you buy one of these vehicles make sure any tire is available -after market- so you do not get stuck in this dilemma.
