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.

There is a distinct and constant vibration on the steering wheel of my 2003 Honda Pilot when it reaches speeds between 70 and 75 mph. Honda has tried balancing tires, aligning front end, rotating tires, replacing tires, etc. And the problem is still present. They have had my Pilot for the past two weeks trying to correct this situation.
