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 into a parking lot the rubber boot is too small that it won't slide over the coupling mechanism to keep something from getting into it. The factory issued floor mat got caught in the turn coupling, and driver couldn't turn the wheel. Avoided a near miss. Contacted dealer.

Floor mat started moving while making a turn. Steering locked because floor mat was jammed around the column due to steering column mechanism not being covered. Dealer contacted, and stated it was design of vehicle. Problem still exists. Provide further information.
