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.

2003 Hummer H2 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 202006

H2 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,570 miles


There were no events leading up to the failure. I pulled into my office parking lot on the morning of 2-20-2006. There was snow on the ground. I turned the wheel to the left, and with a little throttle, spun around into my parking place. I have since discovered that by doing that little maneuver, you can, and I did, shear off the shaft of the power steering pump. Disabling the power assist to the steering as well as to the brakes! rendering the truck all but undriveable. This is also sited in a story by wnbc about a lady that lives in the pocono's who encountered the same situation in her H2 ona snow covered road.
