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.

Driving the car for about 9000 miles, the tires cannot be used. I bought the Hyundai Accent 2012 less than a year and all tires are gone.

  • 4,000 miles
The contact owns a 2012 Hyundai Accent equipped with kumho ecsta asx tires, size 195-50-R16. The contact stated that while driving 40 mph over a railroad track, the front passenger's side tire failed. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for inspection where it was determined that the front passenger's side tire failed due to bubbles exhibited on the inside wall. The tire was replaced however, the replacement tire also failed while the contact was driving 50 mph. The replacement tire, which was also a kumho tire of the same size, failed due to tread separation. The tires were replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The dot number was not available. The tire failure mileage was 18,000. The vehicle failure mileage was 4,000 and the current mileage was 22,000.

I was turning a corner going to work and the front passenger tire popped. I called the roadside assistance to come take care of the vehicle. Only to learn that there was no spare tire, when I specifically asked the salesperson if there was one he stated yes. The car had to be towed to the dealers. The dealer then tells me that I must have hit something because the sidewall of the tire had a hole in it. However, I did not hit anything nor rub a curb. They are not standing behind the warranty of the tires and notified me that the tires on the vehicle are discontinued. I asked why they were discontinued and got the run around.. I asked if defective and no response.
