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 owns a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe hybrid. While pulling into a parking space at 10 mph, the power steering failed without warning. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the power steering module needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure, but the VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V719000 (steering). The failure mileage was 122,000.

While driving the vehicle, any slight turn of the wheel stays in rather than tracking back to center. I have been told this is normal for the electric assisted power steering, however I have not noticed it in other electric vehicles. It presents a serious hazard as most if not all drivers are accustomed to a steering wheel which tracks back to center when the steering wheel is "bumped" slightly or when making a full turn as in intersection turns. The wheel in a 90 degree turn will begin to track back to center but stops short of it. A power steering control module adjustment was done by the dealer but it still does not track back to center. You must manually turn the wheel to get it to straighten out.
