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 the vehicle rubbed against a curb and the axle and the steering wheel column fractured while traveling 3 mph. The contact expressed the vehicle was too low to the ground. The contact stated if the vehicle was higher to the ground, the steering and wheel axle would not have fractured.
