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 vehicle fish tailed when driving on a windy day or when an 18 wheeler passes or if a sudden lane change is made. This started occurring only when speed was at 55 mph, but has progressed. Currently, it's occurring at 50 mph and slower. The dealership replaced all four tires, the control bushing, and the rear struts in an attempt to correct the problem. But problem recurred.
