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 car will intermittently not start. There is a warning on the on board computer that the car's steering wheel lock has malfunctioned and the car will not start. The screen says to move the steering wheel to start the car. It usually take several minutes of tugging on the wheel and it will start again. This happens almost every time I start the car now.
