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.

While driving the car the steering wheel made loud noises. I took the car to the dealer, and was told that the steering pump failed, and the line had a small leak. I had to pay $800 to get the car fixed. I was told by one of the technicians that this was a common problem for the Impala.
