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.

Thumping sound in front wheels when turning steering wheel all the way in both directions. Problem repaired under extended warranty plan, repair technician stated that this problem was common for both 2004 and 2005 Chevrolet Malibu. Steering gear replaced and toe was reset.
