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.

Letter sent in response to the letter forwarded from lorraine gubernik with Jaguar cars dated Aug. 25. consumer noticed a distinct shimmy in the steering wheel when the vehicle reached approx. 64 mph or greater. Consumer took the vehicle to the dealership for repairs along with other concerns. When the consumer picked up the vehicle, he noticed only one of the few items were addressed. The consumer made another appointment at which time the other minor problems were addressed. The shimmy in the steering wheel still existed. The mechanic then recommended driving it for a week letting the tires/car warm up hoping the shimmy would dissipate. The consumer agreed with the understanding that if it didn't work, he would take further steps to correct the problem. The shimmy didn't go away, in fact, it was occurring at speeds between the low 40's to mid 60's. new wheels were ordered and placed on the vehicle. This didn't correct the problem either. Consumer requested another Jaguar with all the same componets to replace his vehicle that he feels couldn't be repaired. The consumer was told the steering rack would be replaced, however the dealership continued to give the consumer the run a round regarding the availability of the part.
