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.

I purchased my car from lockhart Cadillac in indianapolis, in. About one week later I began to have a grinding sound each time I turned the steering wheel left or right. I have taken in for repair several times. In September 2001, in addition to the grinding sound when turning the wheel, my car now slows down when I turn. Also it has now begun to make the same sound when I back up. Both lockhart Cadillac in indianapolis and val ward in ft. Myers, Florida have told me that Cadillac is working on it. They have been telling me this since February 2001. The noise is becoming louder.
