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.

2003 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

I was traveling 60 mph on a freeway when the car suddenly went left and then right. It felt like the car was steering its self. When the pitched it went into the left lane then the right lane. I was in the center lane. I was able to bring the car under control but it scared me. It was so dramatic I could have had a very nasty accident involving my death or the other drivers an the freeway..I took my foot off the accelerator and put the car into the slow lane and backed speed down to 50. The weather was not an issue.

The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Corvette. The contact was driving 25 mph when the power steering failed as the contact attempted a slight turn. The contact crashed into the side of the road and the air bags did not deploy. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence and was not taken to the dealer. The manufacturer was contacted. The failure and the current mileage was 35,000. The consumer stated while driving, the steering completely shut down. Since he had no steering, so he applied the brakes, and soon after, the vehicle went from 25 mph to 60 mph. He hit a curb and the vehicle went airborne. The vehicle spun around and landed on the opposite side of the ditch. Three tire were blown out, the frame was bent and the air bags never deployed. The consumer stated he never received a recall regarding a problem with the steering. Also, the battery would go dead, if the vehicle was started on a regular basis. The consumer stated the vehicle had to be jump started on five occasions. Updated 07/19/12
