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.

Bad Goodyear Eagle ls tires on both front tires. Just replaced L front tire with only 1 low pressure signal - tires went bad in one week. Now the R front tire has come up with the same problem. There is only 28,000 plus miles on the car and the tires are rated for 50 to 60 thousand miles.

Grand Prix

  • 24,975 miles
On Friday, September 9, 2005 at 7:30 pm I was driving on the expressway at approximately 60 miles an hour (in a construction zone). I felt a tire going flat. I pulled off the main highway got out an saw that my right front tire was flat. A tow truck was called, the spare was put on and the flat tire was put in the trunk. The next morning my husband and I inspected the flat tire and saw that the tread had separated, and the steel belt had punctured the tire causing the flat. My husband took the tire to discount tire for inspection of the other tires and replacement of the flat. While there he was told that the left front tire tread was beginning to separate also. We replaced both tires, but left the rear tires in place. The service advisor indicated he sees this 2-3 times a week on Goodyear tires. The tires are Goodyear Eagle ls; the car is a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix. We also have pictures of the damaged tire. Please advise.
