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.

Steering wheel locks especially during extreme cold weather. Mostly turning to left. This is an every day event for me. The dealer said that he can first try resovoir and flush which is $350, but he can't guarantee this will help. If it doesn't help then he will try a new pump which is $800 and something else which is $400. Ultimately, I will be spending up to $1550 for repairs that may or may not work.

The instrument panel lights on the vehicle has decreased in brightness. The problem is noticeable at night. There is a resistance when turning the wheel and when backing. The rubber gaskets continue to fall from the sliding passenger door on the drivers side. The vehicle has taken a long time to warm up in cold weather. The alternator was replaced. Scc

While driving engine and air bag lights came on, gauges started acting up, and headlights started flashing. Consumer lost all power. Also, had no brakes, and steering wheel locked up. Heard a popping noise under hood.
