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 was driving from atlanta, ga to columbia, SC. About 2 hours into the trip, there was a sudden noise and clicking sound (later discovered to be the tire hitting the axle). When the car was examined at a mechanics, it was discovered that the tread interior wall began to separate. The part was replaced. The old part is no longer available, though there are photos.

I drove from atlanta, Georgia to el paso, Texas over a two day period. I was not speeding and there were no adverse weather conditions. Preparing for my return trip, I took my car to get an oil change. The mechanic discovered my tire had severe tread separation. The tire has not yet been repaired or replaced, though the car is now using a donut tire in its place.
