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.

This is an issue involving the apparent failure of three out of four Goodyear asymmetric tires. First issue was a bubble found on the outside sidewall of the right front tire. Approximately 1 week later the left front tire let loose a thin very long ribbon of rubber from the inside edge of the tread. A few months later the left rear inner sidewall blew out in two places like a bursting bubble. These tires have the same date code and were put on the car at the same time approximately a year and a half prior to the first failure. The tire with the delaminated rubber ribbon was replaced at the time at my cost before I realized there was a pattern here. I have contacted Goodyear on numerous occasions and they refused to reimburse me or replace that one or the other defective tires. All old tires are available and in my possession. This complaint is for all three tires...same dot number same date code...
