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.

Approximately 2 weeks ago I received a message on my dash board to correct the tire pressure in my new 2008 Mercedes Benz C300 with less than 4000 miles. I inspected the tires and noticed a bulge in the sidewall of the rear tire on the passenger side of the car. I called the dealer and was told that it wasn't covered under warranty and I have to purchase a new tire, which I did. Now approx 2 weeks later, I have a bulge in the sidewall of the front tire on the passenger side of the car. The tires Continental contiprocontact 225/45 R17 91H cost approx $280 each to replace at the dealer. This has got to be a defect from the tire company. Tire brand: Continental tire line: Contipro contact tire size: 225/45 R17 91H component: Sidewall bulge dot code: Lm7R pxh6 3707 tire was mounted on: 2008 Mercedes Benz C300 4 door.

The contact owns a 2008 Mercedes Benz C300. The vehicle has Michelin Pilot sport tires, size 232/35/19 (na) in the front and size 265/30/19 (na) in the rear. The tires were underinflated by the dealer, which caused the vehicle to drive roughly. The vehicle has been to the dealer several times, but the failure has not been corrected. The failure mileage was 3,000.
