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.

I purchased a set of Bridgestone insignia SE200 5/2013. 4months later I replaced 1 tire due to side wall splitting. Today 12/14/13 I replaced the tire that I bought in 9/13 for the same problem. I contacted Bridgestone via email but got no responds I contacted them by phone they told me there was reason for me to be concerned about the tire failures I had experienced even though 40 % of the tires had purchased this year. 3,000 miles on first tire even less on the second tire, the tire dealer contacted bridgstone and replaced the tire with a Firestone tire since Bridgestone no longer maker the insignia and he did not want to use another insignia because of what he felt was a manufacturing defect that had been seen in the insignias and other tires that bridgstone makes some of witch have already recalled I will keep a close eye on rest of my 40 years of driving this is by far the worst set of tires I have ever owned. Bridgestone should do the right thing and recall this tire before a tire failure causes a fatal injury to some one.but I am sure because of the lack of responce and unconcern of the people that I had spoke to at Bridgestone. My local tire dealer is send my failed tire to bridgestones tech's lets see what they have to say.

2002 Mercury Grand Marquis. Consumer writes in regards to two sets of failed Michelin hydroedge tires the consumer stated he as well as his passengers felt a slight shimmy in the car at low speeds. Soon, afterwards the shimmy became percussively worse. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was determined that at least one of the tires were separating and the vehicle was unsafe to drive. The repair shop stated the vehicle was properly maintained and that the tire wear was not normal. It was also stated that the tires were uneven around the circumference of the tires at the same distance in from the edge. The consumer also owns a 1995 Mercury Grand Marquis with the same tire problem.
