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.

New Michelin harmony tires installed 1/07 by reputable dealer; tires regularly checked/rotated by dealer. Driving fine, was parked, came out to leave and car sounded funny...pulled over on same parking lot and discovered flat tire. Tire dealer reports "bad valve...there is a silent recall". other dealer who installed the tires found this hard to believe; he'd not heard about it...took bad tire out to him, and also found recall info on line by googling "tire valve recall". they determined there was sidewall damage and tire should be replaced for safety reasons. Road hazard guarantee not applicable due to determination that "tire was run flat". only was driven on parking lot a about 100 yards at most. Info on net indicates tires could lose pressure rapidly and it would not be visually evident; driving on low pressure would cause such damage as I had. Never was notified by tire retailer; did not know about this. Had to replace tire and endure much lost time and inconvenience as well as expense. Saw that many others have had same problem per articles on consumer reports blog. Also purchased new valves and had them all replaces on my car...Napa store sells shrader which had been made in us until about 5 years ago I learned.

My daughter was driving at the speed limit on highway 94 in san diego, when the rear right tire exploded at approximately 1:45 P.M. the blowout caused extensive damage to the right side door, rear right panel and rear bumper. The car went into a 360 spin in the fast lane and median of the freeway. The car was taken to a&C paint and body at 7083 broadway, lemon grove, ca at the request of my daughter's insurance Agency - topa insurance. The obvious damage was repaired. However after picking the car up, my daughter noticed a shimy in the front end of the car. There is some sort of apparent damage to the front end that was not detected by the body shop. Additionally, the day after picking the car up she noticed that the rear left tire is also badly damaged, probably from the car spinning during the accident. The old tire was completely shreaded, so there is no old part available for inspection. I had her park the car until we can contact her insurance company to report the previously undetected damages. My daughter was helped by a san diego county sheriff, but he did not write any type of incident report. He only asked if anyone was injured and if there was any property damage. Since neither happened, he did not make a report. My daughter contacted her insurance company immediately. A&C paint and body sent a tow truck to her apartment three days later and towed it to their facility, where they did the repairs I have already described.
