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.

GTI 4-cyl

Continental contiprocontact 225/45H 17 tires have splitting sidewalls on both front tires. The tires are slowly leaking air and going flat, one went dead and 2 weeks later the other is now flat. There are more VW Gti's with this same problem reported on online car forums as well. I have pictures of the tears in the sidewall available.
