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.

  • 6,100 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Viper. While traveling at an unknown rate of speed on a straight road, the power steering failed and became tight. While veering to the left, the contact applied force to the steering wheel with the brake pedal applied. When the brake pedal was not applied, the vehicle veered back to the left. The contact applied force to the brake pedal again and crashed into a fire hydrant and a telephone pole. The air bags did not deploy. A police report was filed. The contact sustained bruises to the feet, arms, chest, and back that did not require medical attention. The vehicle was damaged and towed to a repair shop. The contact was waiting on instructions from the dealer and the manufacturer to determine how the failure occurred and the remedy to repair the vehicle. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 6,100.
