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.

On Tuesday, August 14, 2012, my wife took our granddaughter shopping. After dropping her off at home, my wife proceeded to drive ~30 miles home. On the way she noted a thumping sound coming from the front passenger side tire. She stopped at a gas station about halfway home to call me and ask that I come out to change the tire. At that time she noted a blister in the tire sidewall. Moments later there was a loud bang and the tire blew out while sitting at the gas station. The following day I took the vehicle back to the Firestone dealer where the tires where purchased in the fall of 2010. After listening to a litany of excuses for the failure, including; she (my wife) must have hit a pot hole, tires were under inflated, front wheels were not aligned, tires had not been rotated, finally the salesperson conceded that the tire should not have blown out. The bad tire was replaced at minimum expense to me, but I paid for most of the other front tire, in order to have two tires with similar wear on the front of the vehicle.

75,000 mile tires coming apart after 23,844 miles ! after visiting relatives in stuart fla on our way home on I-95 heading South to pompano beach at 70mph our van started to vibrate viciously in the rear, I pulled off the highway to check the tires, I thought one of the rear wheels came loose I just had it in at the pompano beach pepboys for a tire rotation and frontend alignment, after checking all the wheel nuts on the rear and front wheels I found none to be loose. I did not have a flashlight to inspect the tires with us, I had to wait till we arrived home so I could see what had happened to the tires, I had to keep the speed down to 55 mph because of the bad vibration to make it home this was at 9pm Sunday night. Monday morning I inspected the tires, I found the tires to have cracks all around both sides of the tires where the tread comes together with the sidewall. The left rear tire is the worst, the tread has a bulge the size of a football next to the sidewall. I fell that all of the tires on my van not to be safe tires and I don't trust them.

The contact owns a 2004 Kia Sedona. While driving 60 mph, the contact heard a loud thumping sound. After she inspected the vehicle, she noticed the wheel and tire detached. The vehicle was towed to the dealer however; they were unable to diagnose the failure. As of March 25, 2008, the dealer had not repaired the vehicle. The current mileage was 83,000 and failure mileage was 82,000.
