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 chrome foil decoration on the steering wheel trim is delaminating, causing a sharp edge where the foil has pulled away from the plastic substrate. This is happening at the outside edge of the steering wheel, where the hands come in contact with it. In the course of driving the car and turning the wheel, the sharp edge has cut my hands and those of my wife on several occasions. The dealer says that this is a chronic problem and that the manufacturer is unable to keep up with the demand to replace the defective part. The part is on back order and our vehicle is still not repaired.
