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 purchased and had installed 8 new hankook tires for two vehicles at L&M tire & wheel 185 w. king St. Abbottstown, pa. 17301, 7172590567. They did not record the type of vehicles, mileage of the vehicles or my address. All that was written on the receipt was my name and phone number. This information would not be sufficient for me to be notified if there were a recall of these tires. This should be a requirement to protect the public. If it is a requirement what Agency is responsible for enforcing the retention of this information?

Forester 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Tire explosion while driving on freeway. No accident entailed. Tire shows good tread left, and no apparent source of puncture, hitting road hazard or any other damage. Tire will be replaced. Tire was stock on new (2003 Subaru Forester) vehicle with approx 20,000 miles. Tire is a yokohama geolander 900, P215/60R 94H with serial number on it: C6288U-16. I am concerned because the other three tires are same type. Wondering if any defects led to failure?
