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 a power steering pump which was installed in the vehicle, made a winding sound like the power steering pump was low on fluid. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who refused to replace the power steering pump. The contact expressed concern that this was a safety concern because the brakes system relies on the power steering pump. There was a NHTSA recall # 05V455000 for the hose that goes between the power steering and the brake system. The vehicle was included in the recall due to the VIN, however the dealer refused to replace the components because there were no visual problems present.
