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 stated while driving any speed there was a banging noise in the steering column accompanied by a vibration. The banging and the vibration became gradually worse when the steering wheel was turned to either side. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer who determined that the intermediate steering shaft needed to be repacked. The shaft was subsequently replaced, but the problem recurred. Updated 9/22/2006 - the fuel tank sending unit was replaced. The fuel injector unit was replaced intake gasket leaked.
