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.

The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. While driving up a mountain at approximately 30 mph, the steering wheel turned in the opposite direction of the intended turn. As a result, the vehicle wandered off the road uncontrollably. There was also a loss of braking ability; however, the vehicle eventually came to a stop after applying the brake pedal numerous times. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence. An independent mechanic diagnosed that the intermediate shaft bolts fractured. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 308,000.
