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.

On hot, humid days, the steering gets "sticky". by that I mean that turning the steering wheel becomes difficult because it "sticks" in one spot. It can happen at any time. Small corrections of the steering become difficult. Many times, because it sticks, you have to push harder on the wheel to make it turn, which, when it finally "unsticks", ends up causing too sharp of a turn. I did a search of the web using "Z4 sticky steering" and found that others have experienced this same problem.
