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.

Pickup still has steering problems/wanders on uneven roads/freeways. Should feel tighter and more controllable for a truck this new. I have not been off road 4X4 or had an accident with this vechicle. The steering has been a problem since the day I bought

My power steering system has always made a noise when I make left or right hand turns. I have reported it to the dealership on two occasions, but they never found anythin wrong with it, and now it is not under warranty. They said that they couldn't duplicate it but it happens every time it is driven, so I don't see how they could've missed it. Also, the recliner lever on the driver side seat broke off at the metal after the warranty had already expired so I guess I'm out of luck with that.
