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.

On 6/20/2013, I took my car in for a routine oil change and tire rotation at aamco. The service manager called me in to look at my tires. He showed me the metal showing through my tires, and told me there was no need for a tire rotation. Although aamco does not sell tires, he recommended that I take my car somewhere else asap to replace the tires because they were in such bad shape. On 6/22/2013, I took my car to Goodyear to have the tires replaced. They told me that there was a bad leak in the struts which caused the wear on my tires. With approximately 45,000 miles on my car, the guy from Goodyear said that my tires should not have worn down that badly. He recommended that I call Toyota to find out if they had any recalls concerning struts with bad leaks. He also said that the leakage would continue to be a problem until they were replaced, and that if not replaced, I could count on abnormal wear on my brand new tires, as well. Therefore, I will be contacting Toyota soon. I saw other posts on this site concerning problems with struts. So, I doubt they will do anything about my issue. However, the guy from Goodyear said it looked like a manufacturer problem and I should at least try to get them to repair at no cost.

  • 27,373 miles
2011 Camry with 27,373 miles entered traffic on fwy at 50+ mph started to shimmy violently engulfing me from all sides it was if car was possessed. In my 61 years I have never experienced anything like this. The radio cut out I felt pressure waves and noise throughout the car. I found a gas station just off fwy and checked the tires since that seemed the logical culprit, I found nothing unusual. To get home I had to drive about another 20 fwy miles keeping car at or under 60. I arrived at dealer and waited 3 1/2 hours before being shown possible problem. All 4 tires had what he referred to as "cupping, " on the inside rim. That would explain the entire car turning into a freak-show like nothing I ever experienced. Their solution was to charge me for 4 new tires at retail. Mechanic said tires looked good and had 20,000 plus miles left. Why should I have to replace, (in my opinion), defected tires. Tires were not out of alignment if they were then the dealership is at fault since they did it. I examined all 4 tires in the bay while it was jacked up, no excessive wear showed. Who do I see that will take responsibility" these are Bridgestone tires I thought were a solid brand. I went online to see if anyone had similar problems and found several. What would have happened to me if those 4 tires decided the pressure was too much and blew simultaneously, probably a hideous death!" wife drives the car it hers. She has had nothing but problems with transmission. She can't shift into gear until vehicle is warmed up and even then it is stiff and noisy. On a hill there was no grab it was if the car had no stop it literally took both feet one on brake other revving engine to keep from backing into a truck.

Factory-installed tires were completely and dangerously worn thin at below 24K miles. Tire air levels routinely fell below normal but Toyota dealership (Toyota of dallas) failed to notify at regularly scheduled maintenance appointments of tire wear.

September 21, 2012 I just happened to check the air pressure of the tires (just bought a new tire pressure gauge) when I noticed a large bulge on the front driver side tire. I took it to my Toyota dealer in round rock tx as directed by my service advisor. He indicated that the tire was pinched or hit something to cause this bulge and that Toyota would not replace it under its original warranty. He told me to take it to the Firestone store next door and see if they would replace it under warranty. Needless to say they claimed that it was a road hazard and would not replace it. Now, my wife and I have been driving a combined 62 years and we've never had a new tire blister like this, granted all the tire that came with the car and the subsequent ones we purchased were michelins. Lot of similar complaints on these Bridgestone oem tires on the internet.

Car was brought in for tire noise. It was determined that the tires were wearing unevenly due to misalignment. Since the dealer did an alignment in April I felt that this was unacceptable. After complaining for about a half an hour that this was the worst Toyota I have ever bought (and I have had many). The service manager finally relented to replace all four tires and do a four wheel alignment free of charge. They said it was for "customer relations". or perhaps to make me disappear. In any event I was pleased with the results. Only time will tell if this alignment holds.

September 14, 2011 dear sir, about 10 days ago, my wife had a blowout of her right front tire with tread separation of the sidewall very near the tire tread. At that time, she also noticed on the right rear tire a large blister in approximately the same area that was bulging out several inches. As directed by Toyota I took the 2011 Camry le to the local Toyota dealer (sparks Toyota) in myrtle beach, SC. The service manager (chris ?) indicated that he thought we had hit something that damaged the sidewall on the front and rear tires. He showed me a miniscule scratch on the painted alloy rim that he thought may have been an impact area. I could hardly see it and it was too small to be photographed by my camera. He also said the tire was scuffed slightly but of course it was scuffed after the blowout by sudden deflation. The right rear tire he indicated also had been impacted which I could not see any apparent damage. I spoke with Firestone by telephone and they indicated that since the technician had reported sidewall damage the warranty was no good due to impact. Quite frankly, we have not hit anything with either tire nor run over or scraped the sidewall on curbing. I feel that both of these tires were defective and Toyota and Firestone are covering up defective tires that need to be recalled. I am filing a complaint with the ntsb and also with the consumer products safety administration in Washington D.C.
