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 consumer stated, while driving, the driver was unable to turn left the steering wheel-which had locked up, almost causing an accident. Dealer contacted. Mr the consumer states that the steering pump was replaced by the dealer, but the problem is not solved. Still unable to turn left-not until the vehicle is warm. The consumer is dissatisfied with the vehicle and adds that the window motors were replaced(unsure if problem), the brakes done 3 times, along with numerous steering problems. Scc
