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.

7 year old vehicle I purchased in 09 while still under factory warranty. Power steering pump is beginning to fail as intermintatly wheel feels very stiff in 2 or 3 inch increments of turning. Hope to make it past new years B4 replacing. Fluid was R&red at 39K by Honda. Vehicle now has 44K. These incidents happen just after cranking with sufficient warm up of at least 30 to 55 seconds and pulling or backing out of location.

Power steering is very noisy, and steering vehicle is increasingly difficult at lower speeds.
