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.

Premature tire wear. Car has 11,500 miles. Tire wear as measured by the dealer is 5/32 rear and 4 /32 front. Neither dealer or tire manufacturer kumho thinks this is an issue or is willing to take any action. Both claim tire wear is not warrantied. Tires should not wear out this quickly and it seems obvious that the tires are not properly specified for this car, 2013 Hyundai Sonata.
