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.

The computer system doesn't seem to be working properly. My car just stopped running while driving in rush hour traffic (this happened twice.) my key-less entry doesn't work. Finally, the tire failure light comes on when the tire pressure changes but it doesn't light up when I had a flat.

We had a tire blowout with tread separation, and learned from the dot numbers that the tires on our motorhome came from the same plant that the recalled tires have come from, and we are very concerned because of the tread separation that this is not an isolated incident, and that it may happen to any of the other tires. We have gotten no help from Firestone or Ford Motor Company, all that they will say is that these are not the tires on the recall list. Well, we are well aware of that, but, are they safe" if the whole factory was being shodily run, are my tires safe"( dot number: Vdil tire size: 225/75R16 )
