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.

(reported on)

Sportage 4WD

  • miles
Vehicle pulls from left to right 20-60 mph, especially on main hwy, pulls so hard at times that it feels like it could flip over very easily or throw me into another lane. Had dealership check the sway bar or other parts that could cause this to happen when car was in for other multiple repairs. Dealership said they found nothing wrong with it, however they only drove it 4 miles inside city limits where the speed limit is approx 25-35 miles per hour. Vehicle has been been in repairs numerous times since I bought it brand new in 10/01.
