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 contact owns a 2004 Dodge Viper. The contact stated that while driving approximately 5 mph, he heard an abnormal thumping sound. The vehicle was inspected by an independent mechanic, who advised the contact that the rear suspension knuckle was causing the failure. Additionally, the contact noticed a whining sound coming from the steering wheel and the steering wheel became difficult to maneuver. The mechanic advised that the power steering connecter had expanded, causing power steering fluid to leak. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 32,000. Duplicate to 10511754*smch
