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.

2005 Volvo S80 Owner Comments

While driving on an interstate at approximately 70mph a very slight road vibration was felt approximately 1 minute before the rear driver side tire completely failed. There was a loud audible thump as the vehicle unintentionally jerked to the left. I was able to maintain control of the vehicle and stop safely. Upon inspection, both sidewalls of the tire had separated from top tread section and the tire was in three complete pieces. The wheel incurred minor damage. The vehicle was not overloaded. The tire was believed to be at the correct pressure and showed no signs of puncture or obvious cause of failure. The tire was purchased and mounted professionally 43 days before the failure.
