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.

My air bag light would come on and go off and now it just stays on and horn does not work, I just learned there was a recall on the clockspring part a few years ago but I just bought the car used in April of 2006 and a few months ago I just had a brake problem fixed because light came on and that cost over $400 which I had to open an account to pay for as I am on disability and could not afford that amount so I sure can't pay hundreds of dollars again for something that is a defect. So far have not taken in to be checked as did not know what problem was until I started searching the web, had asked others in prior month but no one knew what could be causing it and had no cash to take it in.

This vehicle had two clock spring failures with the air bag warning light staying on. The first occurred at 3000 miles. The second failure caused cruise control to cease working. With power steering complaint, the vibration and grumbling in the steering at slow speeds was a cause of concern. After the steering rack was replaced, and longer steering hoses placed on the vehicle, the vibration continued in the steering, although somewhat subdued. The steering pump flow control valve was worn. When the fluid reached operating temperatures, the vibration increased and became more noticeable when driving for several hours. The steering felt non-responsive going into turns at slow speeds. I ended up paying for the steering pump replacement, since the dealership didn't consider my complaint a fault with the pump, although the steering is 100% better with the unit replaced.---. ------dims 11 IVOQ entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis-------769523.
