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.

Complaint concerns the Michelin tire no. 2255516 mxm4 95V that blew out on the sidewall while traveling at a normal rate of speed of 45 to 50 miles per hour. The tire had only been used for 30,634 miles and the blow out occurred on a highway. The blowout occurred at an area on the side of the tire that looked like a seam with the threads showing. Because the tire flattened almost immediately, this would seem to be a threat to life if the vehicle were traveling at a higher rate of speed. Also, the Michelin tire is give a high consumer rating and this should--by all reports--not be happening. Thank you for your timely response.

Premature wear on the inside corner of my tires. This was ultimately discovered on all four tires. This lead to belt separation on all tires and a lost of belting on the left front of the car that caused driver surprise that demanded a dramatic emergency stop. This exposed me to highway traffic and almost caused an accident while pulling over in a shocked and concerned state. These tires were recommended for my car by the retailer and met both the speed rating and performance required. However, I don't feel they should be sold for this car based on my experience. They don't hold up to the challenging demands of this application. This failure is dangerous. Had it happened at night or on a wet surface, the consequences would have been much more severe. Note: This was on a car that was fully in alignment, with factory wheels and suspension. The car was driven only as a commuter. No racing or other extreme driving.

My car, a 2006 Mercedes E350 has had four (4) flat tires in about one year's time. I have had discussions with at least three other people who have experienced the same issue with their Mercedes'. I have been told that this is due to the low profile tires on the car. They supposedly provide better handling but are more susceptible to flat tires when hitting minor potholes etc. Four flat tires in about a year is unacceptable from a safety standpoint. This car is unsafe to drive with these tires in place. The dealer does not acknowledge this issue.
