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.

Altima 4-cyl

  • 110,700 miles


I was traveling with 2 small children on a straight way on hwy and the front tire blew in the sidewall of my Michelin tire. I was pulled across the other lane into a ditch striking a stone culvert after going airborne. I had purchased a set of Michelin tires and they were a 70,000 mile tire and had 23,000 miles on them when this occurred. After investigation it was determined a blowout as there was no damage to wheel indication of road hazard that would have caused this type of damage to tire. In other words, the tire and wheel were in perfect condition other that the blown part in the sidewall and if I would have hit something hard enough to cause the tire that type of damage, they said it would have definitely affected my wheel. The tire had to be defective as there is reports are all over internet that these incidents are occurring with Michelin tires. Buyer beware! my car was a total loss. I am without work and without a car now.

Sbrp215/55tr17 Continental conti pro contact all-season tires on my 2011 Nissan Altima coupe. I've had issues with the tires and the check tire pressure light since I purchased it in October 2010. I've had it in to the dealership on numerous occasions and the problem was never completely resolved. The light was a daily occurance and at 20K I considered trading the vehicle in because I didn't feel comfortable driving the vehicle. It felt unsafe - even on dry pavement. I finally bought new tires at 30K miles because I was tired of having to put air in the tires every morning. That is half of the expected life of the tires. The tire had a leak that caused moisture to get into the tire and corroded the sensor. Nissan claims they will not replace the sensors in cold weather climates even though it is still under warranty and I have reported the tire issue to them numerous times. The weather has nothing to do with the sensors seizing. If the tires were not defective the sensors wouldn't corrode. Replaced tires and sensor at 30,990.

The contact owns a 2011 Nissan Altima with Continental sport contact tires size 215 /60 R16. The dot number was not available. The contact stated that the front driver side tire blew out while driving 55 mph. The contact was forced to drive the vehicle in the left lane in order to avoid a crash. The vehicle was towed and the tire was replaced. The contact was told by the insurance company the cause of failure and the tire failed at 4,000 miles. The front drivers side tire was installed four months ago. The current mileage was 20,000.

After noticing "dimples" on the sidewalls of our Continental conti pro tires, on a new 2011 Altima, we checked online and found dozens of problems with tread separation and sidewall failures that led to blowouts. We are getting rid of the continentals with just 2,000 miles on them. It's worth $600 for new michelins to know our 2,000-mile drive tomorrow will be on safe tires. It's just unconscionable that these tires come on Nissan, Ford and Mercedes, and that consumers aren't at least given a choice to opt out. I can't take a family trip on these tires.
