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.

Steering mechanism failed on 2003 Cadillac Cts. The power steering mechanism failed, which made the vehicle difficult to turn, which was replaced. Both front struts were replaced due to leakage and the intermediate steering shaft bolt was under torqued. The left front shock leaked, the intake manifold leaked. The consumer was unable to pump gas due to a defective gas line. A rubbing sound was heard coming from the rear of the vehicle, squeaking from the front end, and a hollow sound when passing over bumps. The consumer requested that the dealer/manufacturer repair the vehicle in accordance to the lemon law bill. (lawyer, joseph ardito on behalf of client robert genovese)
