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.

Normal wear and tear on rear bfgoodrich tires. Replacement tires are not available from the oem manufacturer. Unique tire size for the rear tires on my car. Only one company (bfgoodrich) makes this size. Have not been available for some time. Received violation for bald rear tires and no replacements are available. Was told by manufacturer, they would not be available until June 2009, maybe "???"

Bf goodrich is the only manufacturer of tires in the size my car requires (2004 Mercury Marauder). They are on a national backorder until may/June 2009. This leads to two dangerous options: Running on tires that are bald or replacing with incorrect size. Both can lead to accidents and fatalities. Please require them to start production immediately. Many other drives of this car have the same issue.
