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.

  • 177,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Plymouth Breeze equipped with falken sincera (na) tires, size: 195/70/R14 (na). While driving 65 mph, the front passenger side tire blew out without warning. After inspecting the vehicle, the tire bead wire became unraveled, cut through the brakes line, and fractured the lower ball joint. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence, where it was inspected by an independent mechanic. The technician determined that the tire was defective and needed to be returned to the manufacturer. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The tires were not replaced and the vehicle was not repaired. The tire failure mileage was 50 and the vehicle failure mileage was 177,000.
