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 noticed a problem in my steering while driving in my neighborhood. The steering felt very light and crisp when I would turn to the left. When I would return to dead center and then turn the steering wheel to the right, the steering became very stiff. The next day when I started the car, the "power steering malfunction" light was on. Power steering was completely disabled at that time. Upon doing research I have found out that this is a very common problem with 2004 and 2005 RX8's.
