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.

My 1998 Isuzu Amigo has pulled to the right and vibrates at highway speeds since I purchased it. It has been in the shop seven (?) times and if anything, is worse than when I purchased it. The first time I brought it in for the pulling problem, the service advisor (melissa) told me it was supposed to pull to the right, because "the four-wheel drive stuff is in the right hub". subsequent trips yielded no fix with the service department saying that they had; done a front-end alignment, balanced the wheels, rotated the wheels, and put on new tires. My advisor, "rob" along with the Isuzu mechanic, "mark" have told me that Isuzu knows there is a problem with the vehicles but that they are unable to fix some of them. This week, my Amigo is going in once again, this time to have what I was told is a "spring kit" installed on the rack and pinion steering. The vibration problem is very noticeable and occurs at highway speeds. The steering wheel vibrates as does the whole truck. A great deal of "feedback" is also evident through the steering wheel when passing over rough roads. There is a major problem here and nobody at Isuzu seems able to fix this truck.
