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 wheel broke off while driving, had no steering and no brakes, not exactly sure what let go, was told covered under warranty and then after the car was fixed by the dealership the dealership said I had to pay, as this could not have happened. Company sided with dealership and said would have someone from the company meet with me and look into the matter but has not. I've been waiting since nov02.

Problems with suspension and power steering. In addition, failed suspension. Inspected vehicle for popping type of noise when turning right at low speeds, such as parking lot turns. Vehicle was at dealership once for power steering system and four times for suspension. Consumer feels she's entitled to another vehicle or compensation for a "lemon" calculated in accordance with the lemon law.
