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 vehicle wanders to left and right with steering wheel held straight. On wet roads feels like you are going to skid off the road. On snow it is impossible to handle, I have to drive my Buick in the winter because I have almost wrecked the car several times, finally gave up and drive the Buick in bad weather.
