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.

I bought a fairly new used car 2004 Pontiac grandam from stark Pontiac, sun praire wi on 12/2005, and the mileage was around 13,000-14,000 and now 28,000 and on 08/18/06 and I was almost in a car accident due to skidding off the road and I noticed I had a flat tire I took the tire to get repaired and was told it had bumps no nail that probably the bumps were the cause of the deflation, so I bought a new tire and then 2 days after I looked at my front tire and I could see the tearing in the tires. My husband reviewd the tires and he stated they had big bumps, I didn't take in for inspection since I don't want to have to pay agian. Now I am afraid the tires will burst on me while driving to work. The tires are good year Eagle 205/65/15 and I looked at my neighbors tires since he owns the same kind of vehicle and they also look very deflated I haven't got a chance to ask about the tires. I am not a tire professional but do know that something is not right, I am a bit dissapointed since Goodyear was the one to replace my one flat tire on 08/18/06 and never mentioned the other wear on the tires.I guess what suprises me is that aren't tires supposed to have at least 30,000 to 40,000 miles before they need replacing due to normal wear and tear" please advise. Do you have an other complaints regarding these tires"

While driving in rainy weather it sounded from the right front corner of the car under the hood like something was grinding or abrasion. It sounded like two bearings rubbing against each other. Took the car to the dealer, and they were not able to hear it. The dealer took it for a test drive, lifted it up onto the lift and was not able to hear any noise. Updated 8/14/2006 - the right front tire warped. The brake calipers warped shortly after the vehicle was purchased. Both front rotors had to be replaced due to warpage. The consumer heard noise on the driver's side front end. The dealer replaced the upper strut mount, bearing plate and aligned the front end. The vehicle would lose power while driving. The dealer reprogrammed the engine control module. The master cylinder leaked and had to be replaced. Power steering pump leaked and was replaced. The tramsmission was slipping.
