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 my 98 Nissan Altima through a residential neighborhood when the side wall of my douglas performance tire blew out dot #pjae1ylr0712. I put the donut on my car and took the tire back to walmart. In speaking to the sales person he said that the tires were not worn down enough to be considered a manufactures defect. So the had no warranty, these tires will only be 7 months old on may,9,2013. They refused to honor their warranty because I didn't buy their road hazard warranty at an additional $10 per tire. These tires were purchased on 9/9/12 I still have the original receipt they are 95/65R15.

While driving down freeway at 70 mph my left rear tire violently blew out. I gained control of the car and was able to make it over to shoulder. Tire was absolutely shredded to pieces. I have never seen anything like it. There was no previous evidence of excessive wear on the tire, and there were no foreign objects in road or in tire. I was barely able to maintain control when the tire exploded and as I crossed over lanes to the shoulder. This tire could have caused a serious accident and deaths.( dot number: )

Firestone affinity tires carry a warranty of 80,000 miles. After only 37,000 miles the tires do not pass state inspection! when contacting Firestone they informed us that they had sent a memo to their dealers stating that affinity tires as original equipment on vehicles would as of April 2000, be warranteed for only 50,000 miles. Affinity tires purchased through their retail stores would continue to be warranteed to 80,000! we as owners were never notified of this change. We have 2 Altima for which I am filling 2 reports! tires have been rotated & cared for as the manufacturere recommended!( dot number: Tire size: P195/65R15 )
