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 55mph van would drift back & forth into one lane, and then another. Would be hard to maintain control when this happened. Vehicle is a high conversion on 6 cylinders. Problem happens while driving in mountains and residential areas. Taken vehicle to dealership 4 separate occasions, and nothing could be done. Informed too much vehicle with so little power.
