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 consumer states that she and her husband were traveling on the interstate between 70-75 mph and vehicle was not operating correctly. This was the first time that consumer noticed that the steering was not correct. The owners changed seating arrangements, and the wife took over driving after one hour and a half. The other driver noticed that the truck was pulling her into an 18 wheeler that was traveling besides her. The interstate was flat that they were traveling on. She was trying to apply brake pressure and get away from the 18 wheeler. The steering was uncontrollable before they crashed. The next thing that the owner remembered was that they were going off the road, with one tire in the dirt, and then the vehicle starts flipping.
