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.

A noticeable pull to the left when going around a curve that goes to the left, it will startle you at first. Possibly the steering box or related steering column. Has happened to many times to remember. Freinds of mine also experienced the same problem with 98 Tahoe, I thought it was just my vehicle, then I did some research and there is a recall on this problem, which GMC says there is a potential for only like 45oo vehicles involved, but I believe there is a lot more. Please help.
