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.

Cars pulls to the left when on freeway. Lexus dealer where I bought car has determined that because I'm over weight it pulls to the left. They determined that almost 2 years after I bought the car. Every time I brought it in they said nothing is wrong. The told me the caster was off and was going to fix it then they said the caster was fine and it was me being over weight I'm about 350lbs. My car still pulls to the left and they misaligned my car telling me it was going to fix it. Left is at 1.8 right is at 1.5.

Car pulls very hard to left on highway. Dealer has tried to correct this by 1 alignment and new tires. They said they have done everyhting they are willing to do for free. Since I have to constantly keep pushing the steering wheel to the right, it is causing the tires to cup, so I will be stuck replacing tires every 12000 miles to eliminate loud road noise.
