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.

My tire went flat while driving, when I realized what had had happened and found a safe place to pull over about a quarter mile later, by that time the tire had split completely around the entire tire on the outside and the inside. Thank goodness this happened just as I was merging on to the interstate, and I wasn't going very fast at the time. I was told later by the tow truck driver that these low profile tires split like that frequently by just driving a short while on it after it blows. I am very fearful of these tires now.(Goodyear Eagle rs-a 225/45R17. I was told my the manufacturer of my car VW that they didn't warranty tires on there cars. The local Goodyear dealer told me that this tires didn't have a mileage guarntee, that the tires should go 50,000 miles. My car only had 24,000 miles on it. I am very disappointed in VW and Goodyear and these tires. So much for so called performance tires.
