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.

My power steering failed as I was pulling out of a parking space. I heard a faint noise like a marble dropping onto a surface and rolling as I started the car. I quickly realized I was not able to steer the car. I had the car towed to my mechanic. He informed me that the bolt on the idler pulley broke, and part of this bolt fell into the engine. When I asked him how this could happen, he informed me that he believed it was due to the faulty design - placing too much pressure on this bolt, causing it to eventually break in two. They had to take the alternator off to recover the piece of the bolt that fell into the engine. The idler pulley was then replaced. I believe that if this had happened while I was driving, especially at a high speed, it would have caused a very serious if not fatal accident.
