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.

While traveling on interstate 81, the right, rear tire had a blowout. It was found that the inside of the tire had extensive peeling around the entire side, exposing threads, etc. There was enough loose tire debris to overfill a cup inside the tire. The tire and pictures are available for examination. (tiresize: P245/70R16)( dot number: Tire size: P245/70R16 )

I have talked with service dept numerous and they have told me Honda knows there is a problem but has done nothing to correct. I have tried to get in touch with Honda motor co and only get an automated machine-telling me to call later. Goodyear has told me there is a repair that needs to be done so tires will function properly and Honda service has told me they know nothing about this. (tiresize: 17#)( dot number: Tire size: 17# )

New dunlop front tire has severe cupping; it is now affecting the frontal stability of the cycle, as the handle bars shake (when held with 2 hands) at some speeds. I contacted dunlop 4X, and via a dealer... the cupping is not so severe (and so is the instability) that its hard to go around turns. Dunlop has ingnored me, and I believe that this tire is defective all along!( dot number: Tire size: 110/80zr18 )
