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.

I first noticed this recently. When I make a hard left or right turn, my steering wheel is off-center. It does correct itself in a short time, but I am concerned about driving safety. I'm not sure when I first noticed this problem. I think since the last service. I bring my car in for regular service and any recalls. I make all recommended repairs.
