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.

Numerous problems with vehicle since day one. Power steering pump replaced one month after purchase. Tcm module replaced in transmission at 3 months. Alternator and battery replaced at 10 months. Another power steering pump at 40000 miles. Steering rack at 41K miles. Car has not been properly aligned since steering rack was installed almost a year ago. Vehicle has been at dealership on 14 seperate occasions in 10 months. Shaking in steering wheel at all speeds. Was told this was tire related. Installed and balanced new tires, problem still exists. Wheel shakes so bad at highway speeds that arms are sore. Alignment is not correct and steering wheel is off center. Dealer and manufacturer are not willing or able to correct problem.
