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 driving on wet roads, the car hydroplaned several times. This is not the first incident of this - it is a common occurrence with these tires. I barely escaped an accident in December, 2003, after hydroplaning. I have driven for 22 years in the pacific nw and never have I been so scared about driving in the rain as I am with these tires.

2003 Hyundai Elantra makes loud noise and thumping sound from front tires when driving at highway speeds. I have seen many other complaints of the same problem on the internet, (msn autos).
