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.

Tundra 8-cyl

  • 130,575 miles
Morning drive from fredericksburg, va to syracuse NY along route 81N. Roads are empty, dry, & sun is up. I had just decided to stop at next exit for breakfast when my 2005 Tundra pickup is violently jerk to the right. I try to fight it back straight when it suddenly takes of to the left, then jerks back to the right. I hit the guard rail & the truck flips over. The next thing I remember I'm hanging upside down & I'm hearing a strange noise. I turn the keys off & the noise stops. I think I smell gas and fight my way out of the seat belt & crawl out what is left of the passenger side window since the drivers side is blocked. When I get out there is someone yelling from road. I tell him I'm ok & a trooper stops. I start collecting some silver coins that are scattered when I hear the trooper yelling at me. Sounding mad. He tells me to stop & go to guard rail. As I try to make it to guard rail legs & muscles don't work right & starts hurting bad.ambulances arrive (2) and they argue with me. I tell them I didn't call them & I don't want them. (no insurance & don't want to seat in an er for the next 8 hrs just to be given pain killers & told to see my dr asap.) tow truck arrives & tells trooper he doesn't need traffic control. Trooper leaves after trying to get me to say what caused the accident. I didn't know, since I was awake & driving then I was in the middle of a night mare. Tow truck driver drags my truck up to the guard rail & points out front passenger tire & says "that's what caused the accident. A friend from NY picks me up at the tow yard & on the way back we stop at the crash site. We see where the rim starts cutting a groove in the black top & swerves back & forth the road. 3 days later I meet insurance adjuster at tow yard & he also points at the front tire & says it caused the accident. We notice the tear in the tire is in the opposite direction of rotation, so I probably didn't run over anything.

Driving on 81 N (mile marker 160) in pa at 7:10 am when front passenger tire blows out. This caused me to swerve across both lanes come back hit the guard rail. Truck flips over onto guard rail, slides for a ways on guard rail, then rolls over as it descends a hill. The blowout was in my lane (gauge in pavement) without any object in the road. Tire lost pressure instantaneously. Both tow driver & insurance adjuster pointed out tire as cause of accident. The tire was a Michelin ltx M/S2 with 33000 miles on it, but it had a 70000 mile warranty. Shape & direction of tear in tire is in the opposite direction of the tire rotation, so I take this as additional evidence that I didn't run over an object in the road.

The contact owns a 2005 Toyota Tundra with mickey thompson-dick cepek radial F-C II tires, line size LT285/75R16. The contact was driving 55 mph when she noticed an unusual shimmy in the front-end of the vehicle. The contact discovered that the front driver side tire exhibited tread separation. The contact attempted to take the vehicle to the dealer however while in transit, the rear driver side tire also failed. The contact was able to locate a recall for the tires (NHTSA campaign id number: 06T003000- tires: Tread/belt) and when contacting the tire manufacturer, she was advised that the recall was expired. The manufacturer offered to take the liability for the tire and offered to credit her for another tire purchase. The VIN and dot number was unavailable. The current and failure mileage was approximately 30,000.

I was driving from New Jersey to my home in Massachusetts. The trip is about 250 miles. About 18 miles from my home the sidewall blew out of the rear tire. Road conditions were wet and snowy the whole trip. I don't think I ever exceed 60 mph. I checked all tires for proper inflation before leaving my home for New Jersey. The tires are 60,000 mile tires and had about 43000 at the time of the failure. The tire is a Bridgestone dueler H/T 689 - this is not shown in your selection list. I had to select the closest name but the real name is the one written here.
