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.

I filed a complain with attorney general bill mccollum.

I did found other consumer with the same complains that I have. They have had to repair tire rods, shaft and most dangerous is the steering column is locking up. I don't feel safe driving long distance or on the highway. Please help me. I wrote to gmac vp timothy lee with out no respond. Mr. Lee passed my complaint to a customer service rep that repeats himself and wont let you speak. Please if you want contact attorney office they have my complaint on file.
