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.

2009 Pontiac Vibe steering feels like steering wheel not controlling direction of vehicle and slight turns cause car to turn more than it should. When parallel parking on left side of one-way street and pull into traffic, no visibility to see if cars coming from behind.
