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.

The steering wheel is shaking after driving around 40 miles. Have had the car realigned and bought several new tired get this problem still occurs. The horn goes off in its own whether driving or stationary, and without anyone pressing on the horn. The check engine light stats on even after taken to be serviced. This has occurred for several months.
