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 stated while driving between 60-70mph the vehicle veered to the left and right without warning. There was no visible road debris present. Upon inspection the dealership determined the rear passenger side camper toe on the axel was bent. After the dealer replaced the axel bar, the problem returned less than a week later. The dealer has not been informed of the reoccurrence.
