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.

Driving surface was paved dry two lane route. Speed approximately 40 miles per hour. Left rear tire catastrophically failed. The steel belled tread became totally (100%) detached for the interior side wall of tire. Tire was Bridgestone turanza (T0506) el4pnz 215/45zr17. This is the second tire in less than a month that has had a side wall failure. I had already replaced a tire earlier in the summer of 2013 for side wall failure. Three out of four tires have had similar failures in less than a year.

The contact leased a 2010 Toyota Scion Tc with yokohama S32A93201(na) tires, size 215/ 45 R17. The contact stated that the tires would continuously lose air. The contact would have to add air to the tire weekly. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for service and was told that the sidewalls of the two passenger side tires were cracked. The mechanic tried to seal the tires but the tires blew as the contact drove home. The failure and the current mileages were 11,000. Updated 9/4/13 the tires were replaced/repaired.
