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.

While traveling on highway vehicle oversteered to the right, without prior warning, vehicle lost control and overturned, dealership was aware of problem. Vehicle was analyzed and was found the cause of the accident was due to an improperly tightened adjusting collar on the drag link, this caused the extra effort having to be applied by the operator to turn the wheel to the left to correct the excessive rightward movement of the vehicle, when the adjusting collar finally moved, it created the abrupt maneuver that resulted in the overturning of the vehicle.
