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.

Tire tread wear. The oem tires (Goodyear Eagle LS2 225/65 HR16) treads wear down around 25K miles. There is only one manufacturer of these tires and there is no warranty on them. Attempting to find replacement tires at a reasonable cost is not easy.

2004 Nissan Quest, premature failure of treads on tires, tires have no tread warranty and a monopoly exists on tire replacement as it is a special made tire size for Nissan. Basically tires are worn out at only 33,000 miles. Goodyear apparently made these tires designated as sports tires but placed them on a mini van apparently just for Nissan in the size 225/65/16. Have been unable to locate any other manufacturer who makes this size so it appears to be a Nissan/Goodyear exclusive and thus a monopoly on these tires. Goodyear nor Nissan provide any tread warranty that I've been able to determine. Goodyear said directly that they do not provide a tread warranty on this tire. Goodyear indicates expected life span to only be about 30,000 miles. This was not indicated when vehicle was purchased and not what you would expect as normal to replace tires every year to every year and a half at a cost of over $700. I have been unable to get Nissan North America headquarters to communicate to me any information and local Nissan dealers are also somewhat confused over the size. Consumers who expect tires to last a reasonable amount of time under good driving conditions do not get reasonable expectations out of these tires and must return to Nissan/Goodyear for high cost replacements for low quality tires.
