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.

My wife came out to start the vehicle and noticed the car was leaning severely to one side. The driver front and rear was tilted, something I never witnessed before on any vehicle I once owned. I took it to the dealer and they told me it was a sensor that controlled the balance of the vehicle. The sensor was changed and a few days later it started leaning again. I noticed when the vehicle sits it will begin to lean, but once it is driven for 10 miles it begins to balance itself. I have been trying to contact you all about this situation, however to no, so now I will begin taking further procedures to correct this situation, and not have to continue paying for a default that`S inconceivable.

Problems with the airmatic suspension. The hydraulic system malfunctions and causes your vehicle to lean to one side at this point your turn radius is hindered severely.you also now are only able to drive at a low rate of speed, so hopefully you are not on a major highway when this happens.I know 3 different persons besides myself who have had this issue, and thankfully this major malfunction has not caused any traffic/injury incidents.this seems to be a major flaw in which can cause serious repercussions.
