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.

Car drifts to left at all speeds. Reported to dealer twice. 1st time, on 7/20/98 at 3,300 miles. Dealer claimed steering wheel was off center and they realigned it. Also, dealer stated that air pressure was uneven in all tires and they corrected this. When I picked up the car, they had put 32 lbs in the left front tire, 30 lbs in the right front tire, and 34 lbs in the two rear tires. Complained immediately that the car still drifted to the left. Dealer rescheduled for 8/10/98 and car was then serviced with 3,955 miles. Dealer claimed they checked front end alignment and then rotated tires to correct for a radial pull. The dealer would not replace the tires and stated they would correct themselves after a few hundred miles were put on with the new rotation. Tires were then rotated by the same dealer at 9,824 miles on 3/10/99, and the drift to the left is as bad as ever. I believe something other than a radial pull is wrong.
