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 received recall 06V288000 concerning the ball joints. She contacted the dealership in her area, and they stated that it could take several weeks in order for them to set up service. Updated 2/16/2007 - as of 1/27/2007 the ball joints still weren't available. The tires were wearing on the outer sidewall..

Liberty 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 250 miles
We purchased a 2004 Jeep Liberty equiped with Goodyear Wrangler St tires two weeks ago. With less than 250 miles on the car/tires, our daughter was driving home from university at approx 60mph (temp about 85 degrees, clear & dry) when the sidewall on the right front tire split (completely) around the entire circumference of the tire. She was able to bring the car to a stop without an accident. About 3" of the outside side wall is completely severed from the rest of the tire. There is no evidence of road damage to the tread or sidewall, except for the scuff marks left from the incident. The car was new so we had not checked the tire pressure, although they did not appear to be underinflated and the car was not overloaded. There were no passengers. The failed tire was a Goodyear Wrangler St, P215/75R16, serial no. T307589 grf 95M3ms. The dealer has offered to replace the tire but we are concerned about the reliability of the remaining tires, which were manufactured at the same time based on the serial numbers. This was essentially a brand new tire on a brand new car and it suffered a catestrophic failure under normal load and driving conditions. We are very concerned about this.
