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.

Forte 4-cyl

  • 23,000 miles
Three of the four oem tires that came on my vehicle have needed replacement due to damaged sidewalls. The oem tires are 16 inch nexen CP671 205/55R16 tires, and my vehicle currently has less than 23,000 miles on it. The first tire (front passenger) developed a weak external sidewall on or about 12/31/13, with 7,000 miles on the vehicle. I replaced this with a nexen CP671 205/55R16 oem tire. The second tire (rear driver side) developed a weak internal sidewall on or about August 15th, 2014, with 14,500 miles on the vehicle. I replaced this with a nexen CP671 205/55R16 oem tire. The third tire (rear passenger side) developed a weak external sidewall on or about February 25th, 2015, with 22,200 miles on the vehicle. This time, I replaced all four tires with a different brand.
