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.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse Owner Comments

In November 2013 after driving in rainy conditions left rear Eagle rsa failed as I was driving on the highway. No known cause of failure other then it just blew out all of the sudden. Tire was replaced about a week later with another Eagle rsa. Last night (January 2014) was driving in snowy conditions and then got on the highway and all of the sudden again the tire blows but this time the opposite side of car but still the rear wheel. During this blow the car swerved momentarily but I was able to control the car and then I heard the noise indicating it had blown. In neither case was there an indication anything was wrong with the tire before it blew including the tread depth. Both tires had been on the car less than a year (car was bought Nov/ Dec 2012 and new tires were on the car when bought) and had little wear on the tread depth when they had blown.

I have Goodyear Eagle rs-a P35/45R18 tires on my Eclipse, the car has less than 30,000 miles on it. As I was driving to work front tire blew out due to the sidewall separating from the tread! I had no idea until a mechanic at my work looked at my other front tire and saw that it was starting to separate also! the tires still have half of their tread life remaining and it also caused for my rim to be scratched. In addition, it was noted that at some point the other front tire is going to blow out so at this point my car is a ticking time bomb.

I purchased a new car with Goodyear Eagle rsa tires on it. The tire tread has separated causing the car to be disabled with my teen driver driving it. The Goodyear dealership is telling me now that the tires have no warranty on them. Why would a dealership sell tires with no warranty" why would Goodyear not put a warranty on some brand new tires" I called the authorized tire dealership and he tells me I should have been happy that they lasted longer than 30,000 miles. This is a sham. This is unfair to the consumer.

I was driving on I 95 in Florida for about 12 miles when my rear passenger tire blew out. Apparently what happened was the side walls of the tire separated from the tread. This was a new 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse with Goodyear Eagle rsa 17 inch tires. The tire had only 6700 miles. Thank god it was my rear tire and not my front, because actually nothing happened to me. If it was my front I would not be here writing this. When I went to Goodyear they told me it was a blow out. If it would have been a blow out there would be no more tire. The tread was still intact, but the side wall just separated. Many people now have told me that this was a tire defect and not a blow out. Goodyear gave me a new tire at a discount.
