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.

Power steering fluid leaks inside the car underneath the steering wheel, and the container for the fluid runs very low. The vehicle will need a power steering rack which is a front end part. I was told it is safe to drive. I feel uncertain. To assure that no other part will go bad, it is neccessary to have the problem dealt and the part fix. Especially knowing that I Transport my son and nephew to and from school. It is possible that anything can transpire, eventhough I am told it is safe. I am uncomfortable with driving, but it is my vehicle and I need to get to work, school and drop my son and nephew to thier school, etc. In addition, when acelerating from 1st to 2nd the vehicle is harsh, when warm.
