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.

The contact owns a 2008 Buick Lacrosse. While driving approximately 45 mph, the front end of the vehicle shook violently and caused the contact to lose control of the vehicle. The contact crashed into the rear of a second vehicle. The front passenger suffered a broken nose and received medical attention. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the rack and pinion was faulty and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was notified, but no solution was offered. The failure mileage was 100,000.
