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.

Grand-daughter was driving my Range rover. While driving the steering wheel dropped down into her lap. Was able to brake and slowly turn wheel to pull off road. Steering column would telescope but not raise/lower. Turned vehicle off, restarted, kept trying adjustment lever until finally column retracted then raised to normal position.

Steering column failure, the wheel dropped onto my lap as I was driving. Almost lost control. Very scary, I had to hold wheel up which has full range of un/down motion, while trying to get to the side of the road. There was a failure of the steering wheel tilt mechanism. I disconnected the wheel tilt drive motor and rigged the wheel so it could be driven home.

I notice when I am driving anytime I brake my car veers to the left and I almost crashed two times because of this my car is properly aligned and it has brand new brakes and rotors that's the reason I changed them because I thought that maybe the brakes or rotors were bad but the problem is still present so I would like to know if there has been any recalls on my particular vehicle because this is a very frustrating and dangerous problem I would very much appreciate it if someone please helped me out and contacted me as soon as possible thank you and have a great day :)
