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.

While driving the vehicle at 55 mph the vehicle went to the right then to the left, going into oncoming traffic. Also, while applying the brakes the pedal went straight to the floorboard, consumer had to pump the brakes two to three times to get the vehicle to come to a complete stop. The vehicle has been in for repairs seven times, and the dealer still can't find the problem. Power steering pump was faulty.
