But federal regulators have announced a critical new step to ensure that when a vehicle is subject to a safety order the necessary repairs actually get made. Recently issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the new rules should prove a boon to owners and car shoppers alike as they make it easier to see if a vehicle has been subject to a recall and whether the problem was fixed.

NHTSA executive: Tire fuel efficiency labeling still in works
Rubber News
Tire fuel efficiency labeling "has not fallen off the table," but it will be a while before the missing pieces are in place, according to David Strickland, administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NHTSA decreed a final rule in March 2010 mandating grades for tire rolling resistance, treadwear and traction. However, the agency left the standard's provisions on labeling formats and consumer education programs for later. Proposals for those provisions have not yet been issued.

The evolution of safety technology
Autonet
Tachometer, speedometer, odometer, fuel level and engine temperature — these used to be the only gauges you’d find on your dash, which meant that the amount of information or feedback you'd get from your vehicle used to be very limited. But much has changed over the decades, and today's vehicles are stuffed with sensors that provide the driver with more information than some of us know what to do with. While some of the information falls into the "nice to have" category, there's no denying that much of the data the driver now has access to is keeping our roads safer.

Modern Tire Dealer
Dealers noted that unit volumes fell 1.1 percent compared to June of 2012, which marks a slowdown from May when dealers said that year-over-year tire sales were essentially flat. Some consumers have delayed tire replacements to the point that the industry will see some pent-up demand released in the coming months as consumers adjust to the incremental headwind created by the expiration of the payroll tax earlier in the year.
