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.

Vehicle power steering hose busted. My truck isn't idling right it sounds like my transmission is slipping. Also my tire traction seems off and I repeatedly have to put air in tires. Tires always makes a certain sound on the highway, I don't know if its normal or not.

Power steering has been leaking. Took it to the shop to find it has two leaks. One in the return line on top of where the wheel well is (under a big piece of rubber holding it to the frame), and one in the power steering cooler.

2003 Envoy XL, power steering cooler leaks!!!! constantly putting fluid in resevoir..there is a current recall for the exact same thing on the 2006 model, but the vehicle is exactly the same from 2003 thru 2006... I believe this recall for the 2006 model should include the 2003,2004 and 2005 models also since they are the same part for the vehicles.
