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.

problem #2

Odyssey 6-cyl

The fault description recently reported in NHTSA campaign number 13T006000 for Michelin tire failure for a series of tires is exactly that I reported in complaint ODI number 10470716 last year. I included photographs of the 235/60R17 tires, two of which had failed, and the other two were showing degradation damage. The 235/60R17 tires should be included in the recall. Thanks,

Odyssey 6-cyl

The van has Michelin 235/60R17 tires purchased new in 7/4/2009. One tire failed 3/5/12 with sidewall rupture at 30,500 miles; I have a photo of the damaged Michelin tire area. Tire had rapid air leak - essentially a blowout; was going 20 mph. Second tire failed on 8/10/12 with leak at 35,700 miles. Tire had sidewall leak deflating tire in 10-12 minutes; was going 15 mph. Second tire id is 235/60R17 102T 1391H3mnx 5008. Have photo of tire leak area. Second failed tire and two remaining Michelin tires on van appear to have dry rot on sidewalls. Remaining tires have same id and 5008 and 0209 at end. In both cases, tire was not hit and shows no damage other than sidewall rubber degrading. Tread depth is good. Have photos showing dry rot degradation. I have no confidence in two remaining Michelin tires and am replacing remaining tires on van with the second Michelin failed tire.
