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.

jeep steering has a mind of its own. i have 1100 bucks into it still does it. every tie rod was replaced including the track bar and ball joints, new tires, alignment and so on. if u start it up so the power steering pump is on u can turn the steering wheel and there is no play anywhere. it is extremely dangerous. i have had it to 2 dealerships and they both tell me nothing is wrong. I dont even drive it anymore because it is so bad. I have been pulled over for DUI 2 times in it and i wasn't even drinking! it wont stay on the road
