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.

Grand Marquis 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,980 miles
On Saturday, Oct. 21, 2006 at approximately 12:00pm I was driving on I-95 just South of port saint lucie Florida, traveling at 70 mph, when I experienced a catastrophic blow out of the right rear tire on my 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis, with 14,980 mile on the odometer. The tires were all original equipment tires. The vehicle sustained no damage but the sidewalls were completely shredded, after traveling about 500 to 600 feet to pull over to the shoulder of the roadway. I had to purchase a new Michelin tire at a cost of $144.96 -with a 65,000 mi. Warranty! the tire that blew with less than 14,980mi was not warranted or pro rated by the dealer or by Michelin. I did not run over anything in the roadway, and brought the tire to two different tire shops and they could not figure out what happened. I called Michelin and they told there was nothing they could do. This is ridiculous! Michelin, advertises itself as one of the "safest" tires on the road, -well this particular one certainly was not. It is a P225-60R16 energy LX4. I am reporting this in hope you may be able to get Michelin to help defray the cost of the new tire, and or see if there is a safety defect with this style of tire, which may warrant further action. I remain anxiously awaiting your reply.
