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.

Dealer replaced both upper ball joints, reset toe on Jan 6, 2005 (car mileage was 19,700) under safety recall D47. I have had no problems, but today ( March 15, 2007) my dealer said I had a leak from the power steering rack and pinion and estimates $900 to repair. I drive the truck gently on paved roads and garage it and it only has 25,600 miles on it. I wonder if the recall repair or the ball joint problem contributed to this leak. Please help me.
