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.

Seat becomes a problem when the temperature gets colder. Cool mornings will cause the seats to rise 3 inches causing driver or passenger not to sit correctly and buckle seat belt. This also causes driver to readjust mirror as temperatures rise and cushion lowers. As these changes occur driver must adjust seat forward and back making use of mirrors impossible without numerous corrections daily.also, vehicle wanders on highway, driver must continuously move steering wheel to keep vehicle between lines on consumer's side of the road. In addition, detected clunking noise coming from steering box.
