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.

SC 430

I have an Lexus SC430 2004 with 40K miles on it. I have repeatedly put new tires on the car. The dealership is telling me, that's the way the tires are going to wear because its a so call sports car. The tires is wearing down to the wire on the inside of all the tires about every 7,000-8,000 miles. It's not safe and it's $356 a tire.

SC 430 40-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48 miles
On March 7, 2005 the caller was traveling at 75 mph and without warning a tire separated from the rim about 2 inches. He said it happened again on September 10, 2005. He was going about 70 mph. It happened both times to the driver's side. Dealer asked, the first time, if he hit something and they fixed it by giving him a new rim and tire. Dealer has vehicle now for the second time. Manufacturer has not been contacted yet.
