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.

Steering stiffens while driving, reason unknown. Vehicle was look at by a independent gas station. Power steering fluid check okay. Dealer/manufacturer were not informed at this time. Can NHTSA help in this matter since vehicle only has low mileage of 39000.
