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.

On two separate occasions in 2006 and 2007, oem Continental touring tires 225/45R17 on my 2006 Jaguar X-type sport sedan suffered spontaneous, catastrophic blow out failure under what should have been nominal operating conditions. {I-95, I-495, clear dry pavement, speed below 80 mph]. since those events, remaining tires have exhibited sidewall bulging and other evidence of cord separation. Today (12/26/2008) while visiting safety website, learned of at least 50 similar spontaneous failures of same product, which is also oe tire on Mercedes C300 and BMW 3 series sedans. This seems to be more than coincidence.
