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 contact owns a 2001 Nissan Quest. The vehicle has tbc classic radio sr tires, size 215-65R16 (na). While driving 25 mph, the tread completely separated from the front driver side tire. The contact lost control of the vehicle, but was able to pull over and replace the tire. He took the tire to a tire shop and was informed that the failure was due to a manufacturer defect. The current and failure mileages were 58,000.

In the last 4 months the four original equipment tires on my vehicle have had tread separation. My car is approx 1.5 years old and 17000 miles. I have had the problem occur as I take a 200 mile trip on the turnpike. On each of three trips a tire has gone bad, on the last trip two tires went bad. The first tire I replaced on my own, the second tire I contacted Continental and they sent me to an authorized dealer where they found the tire defective (tread separation). I was offered a pro-rata price for the tire. Currently I contacted Continental once again and they told me to go to the authorized dealer to check the tires. I feel that this is not an isolated occurance and having the four tires with the same problem within this short time frame is unusual and dangerous. The trips I have taken include my whole family, this is a seriouly safety concern.
