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. Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2004 Camry. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2004 Camry is that for months on end, the news media repeatedly told the public that several Toyota models had an unintended acceleration defect, & to go to (the NHTSA's website) to file a complaint.

So, the NHTSA received a disproportionate number of complaints about unintended acceleration issues because of the national news media attention, to the point where their data is unreliable taken in context with any other vehicle that did not receive national news attention. typically receives more complaints per day about vehicles than the NHTSA does, but the news media did not repeatedly say "go to to report your Camry acceleration problems" like they did about the NHTSA -- so although we have less complaint data than the NHTSA for the 2004 Camry, our data for the Camry is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Camry's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

To whom it may concern: I bought a 2004 Toyota Camry from a Toyota dealer, green brook, NJ on June 2004. It came with Goodyear 205/R60/15 tires. I only drove mainly on city roads and the mileage is only 20,500 miles. I rotated four tires once in the past two years. I, however, am shocked to find that the tire treads in radial direction (across from the center tread to the outer rim) of all four tires were totally gone today when I visited a car shop for oil change. I have been experiencing car sliding on wet road since I bought the car but I did not know what the cause is. The technician in the car pointed out the tread problem to me that the car sliding problem is because the worn-out outer tread could not expel water out from the inner center tread. He warned me the serious safety issue on driving such worn-out tires on a watery or iced road surface. I checked your product information that states the tire warranty is 80,000 miles. How could this worn-out tread problem happen when the mileage only reaches a quarter of the warranty. I have checked the internet that there have been many complaints on this issue specified to the Toyota Camry 2004. Toyota shall address this issue and make a recall or compensation in response to this safety concern.

We purchased a 2004 Toyota Camry le and live in syracuse, NY. We receive about 190" of snow per year and they put Goodyear integrity "all season" tires on this car. We have slid through several stop signs and intersections. These tires are touted as "all-season" but when we called Goodyear they said that they weren't intended to be driven in the snow. When I asked her if winter was a season, she said yes but.....I asked how much snow can these tires drive through and still perform and she stated 2-4 inches is the norm. Bottom line...these tires are unsafe at best. They are dangerous. They don't even perform well in rain. If you have these tires, call and complain to Goodyear immediately. They shouldn't be able to put these tires on anyone's car. Why even bother with ABS and airbags if the tires can't stop the car?
