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.

The vehicle drove into a large dip on the roadway (with no traffic control device posted) causing the driver to loose control of the vehicle and drove off into the grass stricking a ditch which caused the vehicle to rollover on it's left side three times before coming to rest, one ocupant was killed the other was injured, the client believes this accident was as a result of faulty steering component similar to the one in recall 98V-116 (attorney for client).
