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.

Sorento

I have cooper discover tires on my SUV I put on brand new that I bought from my Ford dealer on Aug 16th on 2008 it is a 2005 Kia Sorento I bought it brand new in 2004 so I needed new tires and that is what I bought I drove the vehicle every day back and forth to work when I put the tires on my Kia it had 30,402 miles on it now it has a little over 75,000 miles on now they tell me they are dry rotted and I know that they are wearing but I also had a 4 wheel alignment done when they where put on also I had them rotated every 5000 miles also they where MS245/R70-16 4 of them I bought at once I just don't understand how they could be dry rotated and why they didn't even last 60,000 miles we don't drive like maniacs and we take very good care of our vehicles in fact I didn't even work in the last 2 years my husband was only driving in town where we live from one end of town to the other I even had the nitro put in my tires so they didn't fluctuate with the temperature. So I was wandering if there was a recall on these tires and I wasn't notified if so could you please post it so I could print it out to take it to the dealer to get them taken care of thank you because they will not do nothing about them they said there is no warranty on the tires and no mileage guarantee.
