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 went as I was pulling into parking lot about 30 km from home, luckily not on the way there. I was extremely pissed at the fact this could have happened on the way there doing over 80 kph in some places. I checked out Ford, and they had a recall for 1997 F150 but not for my VIN # ( for steering problems). They just gave lip service and said they would do nothing. I could have killed someone, and/or myself. and they just shrugged it off.
