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.

problem #1

Apr 102001

Monte Carlo

  • miles
Steering wheel viberates and visibly shakes from side-to-side after reaching a speed of approximately 40 mph. Vehicle pulls slightly in both directions on a regular basis. Steering column is not centered, and has not been since first day of ownership. Dealership has been alerted to these defects, but has not returned calls. Service call was originally scheduled in April of 2001, but dealership would not furnish courtesy transportation. Therefore vehicle was not left for service/inspection. Vibration worsens at higher speeds such as highway driving. Difficul to control and is thrown when hitting flaw in roadway.
