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.

The contact owns a 2005 Cadillac Deville. When the contact drove into an area with water puddles, the power steering locked up. He immediately applied the brakes and safely drove to his destination. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that water was getting onto the serpentine belt and causing the failure. The contact was informed that there was no current remedy to repair the failure. He stated that any time there is wet weather conditions and the serpentine belt gets wet, the power steering will fail. The manufacturer advised him to call NHTSA and file a complaint. The failure mileage was 32,000 and current mileage was 40,000. Updated 5/5/09 updated 05/06/09.
