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.

The contact owns a 2003 Hyundai Elantra. The vehicle has Michelin energy mxv4 plus, size P/195/60R15 (na) tires. The contact took his vehicle to a service station for routine maintenance. The service manager stated that all four tires were defective because the tread and seam completely separated from the tire to the point where the canvas was visible. The tires were replaced prior to operating the vehicle and the tire pressure was normal. The manufacturer was unable to assist. The failure and current mileages were 38,000. Updated 03-18-08
