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 screeches and shudders when turning when temperatures are below 40 F. I've taken it in to be checked at least six times. I am repeatedly told there is nothing wrong with it. This has been an issue from the get go and now with 55,000 miles on the car it is no longer under warrantee.

We started the car, and was backing up and there was a grinding in the steering wheel when turning it right and left. We took it to the dealer and the power steering fluid was leaking out of the power steering pump into the steering. They cleaned it all out, and added a thicker fluid on 3/ 25/2014, we started the car it happened again we took it directly to dealer and they agreed something wasn't right. They put in a new pump. We picked it up had it two days and it happened again. We took it back, and was told the dealer called GM and they couldn't do anything else because they didn't have the parts. We were told it wasn't dangerous, but I'm thinking if the power steering fail working while driving, we could crash.

Severe grinding or scrapping noise from front passenger side wheel area when turning at low speeds. Problem is only present during cold weather. Seems to diminish as vehicle is used but sometimes remains for long periods. Can be heard by bystanders and very well inside vehicle. Have had no luck with dealer.first few times said could not hear then next time said unsure of cause.
