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.

While driving on I-95 northbound around woolbright road, I ran over tire debris and caused part of my tire to come off. The tire did not go flat amazingly, but I will definitely need a new tire. I have a Navigator, so luckily it didn't cause any more damage like an accident.

I have had multiple incidents of new tire valve failure involving tires purchased and serviced by sears auto center, regency square, richmond, Virginia. The first failure occurred in February, followed by the failure of the same tire valve on the morning of April 24 th 2008. My complaints were dismissed at that time, and again were dismissed when the opposite tire valve failed that afternoon almost causing a serious accident on I 95 ( I have all documentation and aaa reports). I was forced by sears to pay for a new tire and again, they found nothing remarkable in this new valve failure. When I again complained and asked that all valves be checked, sears replaced another valve on a different tire. At present, I have one original valve on my vehicle.

My tires were subject to a voluntary recall and when taken to the dealer were found to be defective. I was informed by the dealer that it would be weeks before replacement Continental tires would be available so I purchase good year tires. I submitted all the required paper work for a refund and the bill of sale shows the new tires were purchased 10/4/02. I received a reply form letter from Continental with a box checked that states; "the purchase date of the receipt you supplied does not qualify. The only previously purchased tires eligible for reimbursement are those tire(s) purchased between August 19, 2001 and October 10, 2002 as stated in your notification letter." I do not understand why they cannot see with their own eyes the receipt I supplied has a purchase date of 10/4/02 and does qualify.

We unjustly lost the lemon hearing, our 2001 has 1997 tires which they refuse to change, the board felt the vib, and our tires are beginning to dry rot. This has been from day one when we peeled the plastic off and headed home, we have all R/O to back our claim. They are now telling us that it is normal for a $46,000 car to vibrate. Please help me.
