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.

Problem was intermittent for about three years. Since there were two recalls relating to steering I hoped the problem would be solved. After each "recall fix" the steering problem seemed to go away. This winter it got worse, but as the car warmed up the steering seemed to improve (i guess I was in denial). Finally, as spring arrived the steering was unbearable.

I just had it serviced - now steering is OK - but I'm out $600. My 1995 Avalon was built like a tank and never had mechanical problems like this "tin man" vehicle.
