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.

Steering is not smooth. The wheel will not return to straight forward after a turn. This defect has become progressively worse and now has reached a dangerous level.

Vehicle has suddenly become very hard to steer. Much force is required to turn wheels and cornering is very "jerky". the dealer advises a new steering shaft assembly is required. This is not considered warranty work. I can not fathom how malfunctioning of the steering assemble after three years is not a manufacturer defect.
