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.

In dry driving condition the driver's steering wheel pulled left and then quickly to the right. The driver compensated to the left and then tried to turn the wheel back to the right to straighten the vehicle out, but the steering wheel would not turn and went off the road and collided with a stand of trees in the median. The car was totaled.

I apply brakes, one front brake locks and steering pulls very hard to the left or right, so hard that it will almost pull the steering wheel out of your hand. The steering also locks and I can not steer the automobile. I have to release the brakes to regain control of the steering and release the locked brake.
