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.

2003 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 172007

Alero 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero. The vehicle has Goodyear american Eagle, size P225/50R16 (na) tires. The sidewalls of the tires are cracking. Between the side and upper tread of the tires, the cracks are extending and causing massive tread separation. The contact notified the place of purchase (wal-mart) and they stated that they were not responsible for the defect and/or returns for defects. Wal-mart referred him to Goodyear; however, they were closed for the holidays. The tire failure mileage was 25,000 and the vehicle failure mileage was 70,000. Updated 03-04-08
