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.

While making a right or left turn the steering makes a loud hissing sound.this steering system is also connected to my brake system. Called hydro-boost. It seems like the steering oil is bypassing through the valve on the steering box. Now will it also bypass when I slam on the brakes some day? went to the dealer 3 times and they say they can't do any more. They changed the steering gear box, steering pump and hoses and still the same.
