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.

Vehicle constantly pulls to the right, have had the dealer look at it 3 times, they say there is no problem.they give me excuses such as tires need rotated, the steering is super sensitive, or it drives straight for them.

problem #1

May 191999


  • miles
The steering wheel abruptly pulled to the right. When I tried to steer the vehicle back on the road, the steering did not respond well. The steering was out of control. This caused my vehicle to do a 180 and go off the road. The vehicle subsequently flipped 4 or 5 times. Also the airbags did not deploy even though there was front end damage.
