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.

2001 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Comments

Mountaineer 4WD

Left rear tire felt wobbly while driving up hill, then exploded, separating tread from sidewalls. Was able to pull over safely immediately. Tires were inspected during oil change about 2 days prior to incident. Police responded while I was changing tire, but no report filed (by me, anyway). Reported incident to Firestone and Mercury cust. Srvc. Firestone declined to help in any way to replace tires. Mercury helped expedite replacement, which was done w/in 2 days. I am happy with the new tires, from bf goodrich. (tiresize: P23575R15)
