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.

1/14/13 steering was squealing and popping when turning steering wheel. Dealership replaced steering gear reset toe. Car was under warranty. 8/28/13 steering was squealing and popping when turning steering wheel. Dealership replaced intermediate shaft. Car was under warranty. 7/22/15 steering squealing when turning. A different garage from above will replace steering rack on 7/25/15. I do not understand the reason for having basically the same steering problems with this car. I will have to pay for this latest repair. I feel as if there is a problem with the manufacturing of this product and needs attention.
