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 air bag light illuminated and the transmission shift lever shifted from drive to neutral while driving. There was an explosion while the vehicle was in motion. The engine light had come on, the transmission went into park, the gear shifter lever didn't move, the gas pedal worked fine but had frozen up in the park position. The air bag did not work and the seat belt didn't work.

While driving at 35 mph consumer's son heard a loud popping sound coming from the steering column. Moments later, the driver lost control of the vehicle and collided with a guard rail on the driver's side. The seat belts were worn, and the air bags did not deploy however, there were no injuries. Before the collision the consumer heard ticking sound coming from the steering column. Also, there was a tsb concerning this problem. The vehicle was taken to the dealer once before the collision and once after the collision. Vehicle was repaired by the dealer, but the problem still persisted. In June 2003 the consumer had a problem with a major draw on the engine with the heat or A/C running. The consumer was told that the compressor was replaced so the A/C and the heater would work properly. The consumer had explained to the service dealer that there was a problem with the steering and the mechanic suggested that this wasn't a dangerous problem. (following this service visit, the consumer's son experienced the above accident) the consumer had also found that the warranty work for the steering hadn't been completed. Recall#10010414
