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.

When turning the steering wheel the wheel appears to click or knock. This begam shortly after I had the vehicle in to have the transmission repaired as it was shuddering after stopping and starting. I contacted the service people at the boise larry miller Buick place, where I had transmission fixed. I was told it was not serious and they would check it when I brought it in for service. But it concerns me, and I need to know if it is serious.
