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.

I purchased a 2011 Lincoln Mkz on 11/5/2012, it had 13,593 miles on it. During my last oil change, ON7/28/15, at 37,440mi, I was informed that I had cracks and in all of the tire walls and would need to replace all 4 tires immediately.I bought the car at the dealer that was doing the oil change. When I argued that the tire warranty guide that came with the car indicated that the tires were good for 60K, I was told that it was my fault that the sidewalls had cracks, because I had not rotated the tires on a regular basis. So I assumed that it was my fault, and replaced my tires ($700). Today, while checking a different recall, I saw the other tire complaint about Michelin's and 2011 Mkz's and realized it was not my fault. I don't know if the dealer knew about this-I thought they were trying to trick me so I went to an actual tire company for replacement. Unfortunately- because I didn't know at the time, I had them discard the Michelin tires after they replaced them. I am sure I had Michelin tires, I have the original tire warranty guide and it list 5 possibilities-all Michelin. I based the size of the tire on the size of my replacement tire. I do know that the car came from the hermosillo assembly plant. I have the original sale sticker. I am sure I can find more information from where I bought it if needed.
