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 power steering pump failed while I was driving on a mountain road pulling a trailer loaded with oak firewood. As a result, I could not steer the truck or stop it with the brake pedal, as the power steering pump is also the power assist for the brakes. I had to use the manual over-ride on the trailer brakes to help stop the truck. It was a good thing I was driving slowly! I will try to replace the pump myself.
