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.

I was driving along pacheco pass in the night. At one section there was large white paint strips (bigger in footprint when you compare it with the traffic divider broken lines) when the vehicle passed over this painted section on the hwy because of the smoother slippery surface. I seemed to lose control, the steering became too fluid, and later if I exceeded 65 miles on a normal road I felt that I was loosing control, something weird had happened to the automatic stability control system. I would like to also mention that it was very windy, but smaller vehicles were zipping past without any apparent problems. I realized that if I drive below 50 miles I didn't experience this problem of stability and loose steering. After some distance I pulled over, stopped the car, turned off the ignition and then started and began driving, I didn't experience this loss of stability after I did this. It seemed like there is some kind of a software glitch in the automatic stability control of the vehicle I was driving in. Which was a rented Dodge Avenger 2010 I'm posting this in the hope that NHTSA takes up the matter and researches stability of vehicles when driving on pavement which has a painted section & also looks into the trigger mechanisms of the automatic stability control when encountered with such a case.
