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 contact owns a 2003 Ford Mustang convertible. The contact was driving approximately 30 mph when he felt as though something had fallen on his leg.

The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the contact was informed that the steering column would need to be replaced. The manufacturer was contacted but advised that they could offer no assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The current and failure mileage was approximately 102,000. Updated 12/7/11
