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.

I first heard a metallic rumbling sound, the steering felt uneven. After one louder "clunk" the power steering went out and I had to use all my strength to control the car in a low-speed turn. If my wife had been driving, she would have gone into the ditch. When I opened the hood I saw that the pulley for the power steering (which I later learned also controlled the water pump and the alternator) had come completely off and was lying in the engine compartment. The belt that should have been attached to it was also sitting there, unattached.
