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.

There was a clunking noise when the steering wheel was turned in any direction. It could be felt in the steering wheel and the brake pedal. It got progressively worse over time. I took it to the dealership and they said it had a faulty rack. It was replaced under the warranty and the noise is gone.
