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.

Dodge Dakota had several problems at low miles, notice scrunch sound in front suspension. The consumer noticed a slight wobble as he drove the vehicle. Ply separation was the cause of the wobble in the tire failure.

New delta Sierra dial tires purchased 06-04-04 for professional delivery vehicle. At 4,644 miles right rear tire tread totally separated while in route with client on freeway causing loss of control of vehicle, blowout, and extensive damage (approx $4,000) to livery vehicle. Yokohama tire Corp asked for tire and denied liability although offered "good will" offer of $2,000 within days. Product liability manager anne stott indicated a road hazard caused separation, not defect, and said a rock the size of her hand could have caused this. Husband kevin burns is only driver of vehicle and never recalled any such hazard or incident. His driving record is impeccable (over 35 years, professional driver total of 12 years) and kevin takes exceptional care of his vehicles. If only a rock like Ms. Stott said did this we feel there is a serious lack of quality control in manufacturer's standards. There are other such complaints in file. If it were not for kevin's excellent driving skills (per client inside vehicle during incident) there most certainly would have been a serious accident with injuries. Collision center manager expressed concern to replace remaining 3 delta sierradial tires on car due to safety issues especially as we carry people for hire in our business.
