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 was proceeding South on interstate 71 halfway between cleveland and columbus, at 55 mph. The road was dry. All of a sudden, the car started drifting towards the right. When I turned the wheel towards the left, there was no immediate response. When the car responded, it started drifting towards the left. I had no steering control of my car for about 10 seconds. Fortunately, I was able to straighten the wheels, and regain control. I had my mechanic inspect my car, and he determined that the power steering pump and its associated electronic control switch had to be replaced, as their malfunction caused my loss of steering control. I've since had those parts replaced. I no longer have the old parts.
