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.

2013 Volkswagen Golf Owner Comments

  • 9,230 miles


Our VW Golf came with Continental contipro contact tires. With less than 9300 miles on the car, we had a catastrophic tire failure. As we entered the freeway on ramp, our tire indicator lit up telling us to check the tires. Less than three minutes later, in a high speed zone limited to one lane because of construction, with no shoulder, our front drivers side tire completely separated, leaving us with limited control over the car and few options to avoid a crash that potentially could have resulted in a huge pile up and fatalities. Checking a website regarding Continental tires at Consumer, I see hundreds of similar complaints about these tires failing at low mileages. This is extremely dangerous. People's lives are at risk.
