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.

1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue Owner Comments

I had a sidewall blow out with a three week old dunlop tire while merging on to an on ramp at 40 miles per hour. The tire lost pressure immediately and caused temporary loss of control of the car. The weather was only and 30 degrees, and I openly had myself and empty trunk car. The tires were purchased at an authorized Goodyear dealer and installed with a set of equally sized four tires. Corporate and retail Goodyear people will only replace the tire if they can be proved that it was defect in the manufacturing of the tire, not with installation or any other charaterisitics. The prevoius tire on that rim was a Goodyear tire that lasted 45000 miles without incident, so rim damage appear to be not likely.
