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.

GTO 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission

Right front tire has excessive wear on inside. This was noticed at each tire rotation and now the vehicle has 18000 miles and is showing more wear than should be.

GTO 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I discovered severe inside tire damage at only 17,000 miles. Research found that many other 2005 Pontiac GTO's are suffering from similar damage due to the front tires rubbing on the struts. I took the car to my local dealer, and he refused to do any aside from selling me two new tires and an alignment.

Front tires are rubbing against the inside strut. Took the car to the local dealer and they said nothing was wrong with the car. It was just out of alignment. They billed me for an alignment and I replaced the tires with new tires. Just over 18K miles. Middle and outside of tire was just fine, plenty of tread left. Inside had a groove cut into the tire and had cut the tire down to the belt.

- Claremont, NC, USA
