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.

2016 Cruze the steering locked as I was merging into traffic with my 16 year daughter all electrical system was going off and on. After a couple of minutes steering released and radio system came back on and was able to make it to the local dealership. We purchased this Cruze for my 16 yr daughter as her first car but find it very unsafe. This problem is a safety hazard this problem needs to be fixed before somebody gets seriously injured or killed. Chevy needs to look into this problem and get this fixed. This happened 9/14/16 and car is still at dealership. Service tech can not figure out what is wrong with it. He was not even able to drive it himself.

The contact owns a 2016 Chevrolet Cruze. While driving approximately 70 mph, the steering wheel became extremely difficult to manuver and required excessive force. The failure occurred while driving on a straight road for an extended period of time and 55 mph or greater. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the vehicle was test driven; however, the mechanic was unable to duplicate the failure. The dealer failed to perform diagnostic testing. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 6,850.
