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. Notes: For the 2013 model year, the Crosstour got a facelift and the more-efficient (albeit terribly named) "Earth Dreams" engine. While the newer model now gets better MPG, you're not going to be able to ride for long considering they did nothing to address the terribly uncomfortable seat.

Electronic power steering unit going in and out while driving.

problem #3

  • 56,041 miles
I was driving on a street going 35 mph and all of a sudden my wheel locked up and I was unable to turn the wheel at all. I looked at the dash and the light with the steering wheel and the exclamation mark was on. I proceeded to drive at a slower speed because I was right up the road from my house. Luckily I had no turns to make. This is very unsafe and luckily I was not on the highway or traveling at a higher speed because this would have caused a major accident. I went home and parked my vehicle, the next morning I started the car to get the mileage and noticed that the caution light was off I proceeded to turn the wheel and it was normal. I drove my car to the auto shop. My car has been checked and it has power steering fluid and the mechanic stated all is well with it. My concern now is why did that happen and will it happen again.

When I started the car, the indicator for a power steering failure was illuminated on the dashboard. The power steering did not function, and there was no power steering assist. The car has been taken to the dealer for diagnosis and repair.
