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.

1998 Grand Prix VIN #[xxx] built 11/3/1997. I am experiencing the same problem that is recorded on recall NHTSA campaign id 02V286000. On left turns extreme force must be applied to the wheel to complete turn and at times cannot turn as much as I should. It then takes extreme force to pull the wheel back to the right. On three occasions on the day listed below the wheel actually stuck in the left turn position heading my car towards on coming traffic. I feel that a review should be done on the period of time my car was assembled. It appears my car was assembled one month after the period identified in notice 02V286000.
