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.

Vehicle was taken to the dealer for a routine inspection, and mechanic determined that rack and pinion steering broke, and needed to be replaced.

After taking vehicle in for an alignment I was informed by mechanic that there was a problem with "right power steering rack mounting bushings" and the "lower control arm" was making a noise. He said it would cost approx. $1400 to correct this problem. This vehicle was well amintained and driven properly at all times. This seems a bit strange that a vehicle less than 4 years old, not driven abusively would have such a major expense repair.

Car pulls to the left upon slowing down to a stop, driving on bumpy terrain and freeway conditions. Car has beeen in 4 times for repairs such as complete rebuild of rack and pinion, rotation of tires and alignment. Problem still exists. Steering wheel comes to rest turned left and will not "bounce back" to center after manuvering a left turn. Steering wheel does come back to center after negotiating a right turn.
