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.

During wet weather conditions the vehicle suddenly lost power steering, braking ability and the battery indicator lamp illuminated. This has happened about a dozen times. My wife, son, and daughter have experienced the same problem in the same type of weather conditions with this vehicle. The last time it happened to me while I was in the process of making a left turn, good thing I thought quick and grabbed the emergency brake or I would have had a head on collision cause of the loss of (power steering and braking ability). Everyone in the family is afraid to use the vehicle in any weather condition since they experienced this problem.

While driving in wet conditions, the battery indicator light and the brake indicator light illuminated in the display. Power steering failed, and the vehicle was difficult to maneuver to safety. The headlights and dashlight power was significantly reduced. After coming to a stop without steering power, the emergency brake was engaged and disengaged without a change in the illuminator light. The car was hesitant to move - grinding noise and major difficulty turning the steering wheel. This happened on two different occasions during similar weather/road conditions.
