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.

While in motion there was a thumping noise emmiting from the right front tire. The steering wheel locked and the key would not return it to it's normal postion. Also there is a problem with the brakes, also the gear would not shift out of park.

Any small change in slope of road causes the car to abuptly and unpredictably swerve in that direction. Took to dealer, superior motors of orangeburg, SC many times and they say "all is in specification". I consider this to be a dangerous car to drive-requiring constant attention to catch the swerves before they cause an accident. If this condition exists with other people driving this model, then serious accidents are bound to happen. I know of no other course than to report this condition in this $25,000 car. Please help me and maybe many others.
