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 #2

This has happened several times, while driving between 20 and 40 mph on dry pavement, slight curve, a beep in dash, shaking in right front wheel, as it pulled into oncoming lane to the left, I hit brakes "clunk" it took both hands to pull back into my lane. Power was lowered, felt like power steering went or lost a wheel. After out of curve everything fine. Would have hit someone head on if a car had been in the other lane. Called dealership, they stated it was normal. This has happened on and off about 10 or 12 times in the past 3 months. The vehicle now has 41000 and still having the same problem.

On 10/1/2011 while driving 40 mph on dry pavement, slight curve, pu beep in dash as it went into oncoming lane to left quick, I hit brakes "clunk" took both hands to pull to right and off the road. Felt like power steering went or lost a wheel. Would of hit someone head on if was meeting a car or truck. No cell service, so decided to slowly turn around, and try to get home==1 mi. Or less. Parked. Called dealership, they said they would have towed, but if they find nothing I have to pay. I drove up tues., they said nothing wrong. Probably leveling--because I put a 3" lift on it. I now am afraid to drive my new pu. 2,600 mi. They said they put on machine, but no print out as it showed nothing wrong"???"
