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.

Steering wheel/column is not parallel to the driver. It is slanted so that your left hand is forward of your righ hand, thereby giving the preception that you are aimed/driving toward the right side of the road. Checked all Crown Victoria's on dealer lot and they had similiar setup and in some vehicles the slant was more than in others. Also, in some vehicels the drivers seat was off-set facing toward the right side of the car. I consider this a safety issue because it could lead one to over steer or over correct due to the mis-preception of where the vehicle is actually being guided. So far the manufacturer has not advised me of why the vehicle is designed this way, but agrees that it was built like this for some reason. Have not been able to get Ford engineers to tell why they designed the steering column this way. Local dealer service center had adjusted my vehicle's steering column to be more parallel to me, but it is still slanted and at times makes steering a little confusing.
