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.

When turning to right vehicle will make a sharper turn, like steering wheel is being jerked in that direction. Took vehicle to dealer, and they changed steering sensor. Consumer felt that this was very dangerous, car could tip over.

The vehicle has been experiencing several suspension related problems, the side shock absorber split causing a rattle, the dealer replaced the bolts on both the driver and passenger sides, consumer complained of steering wheel pulling to the right, the dealer found that the vehicle was out of alignment and after the alignment was completed, the problem still existed, the dealer later found a left front inner tie rod nut loose, however the vehicle still pulled to the right so a tire rotation was done, also, the coil spring insulators were missing causing a clunking noise when turning, it was later found that the insulators were improperly installed, the vehicle continues to pull to the right after all the repairs and the dealer can not find a remedy for the problem.
