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 wanted to bring to you notice that, carx located at 7880 tylersville sq dr, West chester oh 45069-4688, (513) 777-7945 is selling low quality "federal" brand tires. NHTSA (national highway traffic safety Agency) has rated more than 2,400 lines of tires and the "federal tire" brand sold by carx does not even appear on their list!! check it out for yourself at this page (drop down list) I am not sure if the "federal" tire complies with NHTSA developed tire safety grading system, known as the "uniform tire quality grading system (utqgs)", that allows consumers to compare tire treadwear, traction performance, and temperature resistance. The federal government requires tire manufacturers to grade their tires in these three areas and place the information on the sidewall of the tire. Can you please advice regarding a retailer selling tires not listed in the NHTSA database ?? I am concerned about the safety of the tires since these tires are not listed in NHTSA database...... moreover, I did not even find the 'federal' brand tires listed in the top 25 (twenty five) tire brands. The tire pressure is not consistent and has to be filled every few days... took the car to carx and they don't seem to care.

My car is a 2001 Maxima it came with toyo tires from the factory. I got a flat and went to have it repaired they wouldnt fix it because the tire and the other tires on the car are dry rotted. The tires had 23,000 miles on them and were quite worn not what you would expect from a premium tire. The last time the car was in for servicing the tech told my wife that they would need to be replaced in the near future.. I called toyo and they sent me to thier dealer in naples Florida. The tech there confirmed that the tires were in fact defective. He called toyo with the tread depth and informed them of the dry rotting. They said they would give me a adustment on the tires but would have to see them. Well it has been two months and I still dont have the adjustment check. I'm not happy about that either !

After purchasing a new 2001 Nissan Maxima SE in August 2001, I taken it back to the dealership over five times because of the steering and vibration of the tires and the problem is still not fixed.
