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.

The contact owns a 2007 Mercedes Benz Slk280. The vehicle has Michelin Pilot, size 245/40R17 tires. While driving 35 mph, the vehicle began rocking and shaking. When the contact inspected the vehicle, she discovered that the rear passenger side tire was split at the seam. Mercedes roadside assistance changed the tire. She was informed by Mercedes that she would be responsible for the tire and suggested that she drove over something to cause the failure. The current and failure mileages were 7,000.
