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 vehicle was driven to a mechanic and the steering angle position sensor was replaced, but the failure recurred. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified.

Power steering fluid leaked out from steering rack. Independent mechanic replaced for $950 dollars. One year later rack replaced again under mechanics warranty. Power steering pump failed because in was run while low on fluid due to steering rack leak for $450 dollars should have been covered under warranty.

Power steering fluid leak on driveway. We knew what it was because our other Srx had been having the same problem. Took into GMC service 3 or 4 times to have seals replaced. Both of our 2006 Srx's have the same problem. We keep steering fluid in our house just in case we need it.
