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 consumer owns a 2006 Saab 9-3. while the consumers wife was driving the vehicle when the lever that holds the steering wheel in place fell off. As a result the steering wheel moved in a back and forth motion. The steering wheel also up and down in direction. There was no prior warning that anything was wrong with the steering wheel. The vehicle was currently at the service dealer being repaired. The dealer reinstalled the lever, and stated that the factory may have installed the lever incorrectly. The manufacturer had not been contacted. (11/17/05)
