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 leaking into rack no visible signs of leak. Dealer has attempted to repair 3 times. Car is now back at dealer 11/16/07 for forth attempt to repair. We are afraid of loosing control of vehicle when power steering fails since steering becomes hard. Honda case number : 12007-11-1601-339.

2006 Civic steering wheel is difficult to turn back to straight position. * ts when the consumer made a left lane change and attempted to straighten the wheel he noticed that the steering wheel was difficult to straight. The consumer had to use excessive effort to straighten the steering wheel in order to avoid hitting a concrete divider. Once the consumer did that the steering wheel felt normal again. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but the found nothing wrong with the vehicle.

: the contact stated there was a clunking noise coming from the front of the vehicle. The problem was getting progressively worse. The dealership determined the motor mount was bad. The dealership repaired the motor mount by replacing an unknown part, but the problem persisted. The dealership refused to repair the updated 10/25/2006 - the dealer replaced the side engine mounts but the noise returned. The vehicles power steering elbow inlet leaked.
