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.

While driving this car I have felt as if I was going to be slung into traffic on the interstate, highways, city roads, country roads, and definitely in most curves. It's like the car has a mind of its own going where it wants at low speeds you can't feel or see it to much but after around 35 to 40 is when it's most noticeable I feel that I got I will trade for some this has resulted in my vehicle to be totaled out. As I was going around a turn one day the vehicle suddenly pulled harder into the turn so I tried to adjust but it sent me into a fishtail and before I could get off the road I impacted with another car which deployed seven airbags.
