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.

The contact owns a 2001 Nissan Frontier. The contact stated that a clunking noise could be heard coming from the steering column. The contact also expressed serious concern over the possibility of the steering column cracking, increasing the risk of a crash. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, and the contact was advised to take the vehicle to an authorized dealer. There was a recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 10V554000 (steering:column) that may be related to the failure. The vehicle was not yet taken in to have the failure diagnosed.
