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 wheel makes thump/clunk sound when turning or going over bumps which causes steering wheel have wiggle/loose. Steering wheel is also making rubbing sound when wheel is turned slowly in any direction. I had my local dealer look into this and they concluded that wheel needed to be greased. The thump/loose steering wheel problem continued and I ended up taking vehicle to another Cadillac dealer nearby. I explained to advisor of continuing problem and informed them that another dealer attempted to repair. I was told by advisor that problem was worn tires. I explained to advisor that vehicle had this problem when car was purchased with new tires. I replaced the tires two months ago per dealer's recommendation and problem is still continuing and getting worse.
