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 the steering wheel will jerk to the side. This is very dangerous it wil really cause you to over correct and cause a very serious accident. I really would like to find out if this has been reported before or if there has been a recall on this particular model. Other than this problem we love the truck. Thanks for you consideration on this problem.

Rubbing noise would occur when making a slow left hand turn. It sounded like it was coming from power steering, or steering sector.

The steering wheel would jerk. It feels like steering went out. The problem is intermittent, but an every day occurrence. Been to dealer & mechanic they could not locate cause of jerking.
