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 driving at any speed the consumer felt a vibration in the steering wheel and the seat. After seven visits to the dealers, they replaced the front suspension. The consumer has had the tires balanced 8 times and has bought 7 new tires. The vibrating continued. The vehicle had a driveline shimmy at higher speed that was inherent to the vehicle. The front left tire was out of balance and the front left rear wheel were out of alignment and was corrected, vibrations were still evident during subsequent road test and three tires were found out of balance. The consumer was told that the tires and wheels weren't the problem. The consumer was told the vehicle had a driveline shimmy at a higher speed.
