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.

: the contact stated the steering was over reacting causing the vehicle to be very difficult to control while making left or right turns at 65 mph. Once the contact slowed down to 45 mph, the vehicle had better control but it seemed like the vehicle was electronically operating itself through the turns and was very difficult to control. The vehicle had not been to a service dealer. The vehicle was a rental. The consumer stated while driving on the freeway, a vehicle veered into her lane which required her to do a quick evasive maneuver, the turn the consumer made to avoid the other vehicle was quick, but small. The vehicle seemed to over react to the consumer's input and went out of control. The consumer had to correct the vehicle's steering to keep the vehicle from overcorrecting. The vehicle was a rental car. Updated 12/05/06.
