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 2006 Chevrolet Corvette. The service active handling warning light illuminated on the dashboard. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who replaced the steering wheel position sensor. The failure recurred within 10,000 miles. The dealer installed an unknown clip in the steering wheel position sensor to maintain its stability. The contact also inquired about NHTSA campaign id number: 10V172000 (steering column) and the dealer advised the recall repair had previously been performed on the vehicle. The vehicle was not serviced. The dealer was advised that the wire connector and not the sensor was defective. The contact believed the dealer to be misleading and contacted the manufacturer who would not provide any assistance. The failure mileage was 33,000 and the current mileage was 66,000.
