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.

My car steering is too loose, I float into other lanes, can't turn a corner safely or freeway onramp. The car blows in the wind, blows into other lanes. Cannot drive in the wind on the highway. The wheels slip whenever it is wet, and traction control does'nt seem to control it.cant drive in wind or corner at all.

problem #1

Corolla 4-cyl

  • 9,350 miles
The driver fell asleep at the wheel, awoke and tried to correct his lane position. Upon his attempt, the car could not be stabilized or controlled. This was a front end crash at a speed of approximately 50 - 55 mph going through a chain link fence, hitting hundreds of stacked lobster crates (like hitting a brick wall). The car was completely totaled, the driver had seat belt on. Not one air bag deployed. The driver side mirror smashed through the driver side window and a piece of wooden lobster crate with nails came through the front windshield and into the vehicle. This caused serious injury to the driver, sever facial and elbow lacerations, and major amounts of glass fragments in his body. The driver was the only individual in the vehicle.
