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.

2003 Nissan Pathfinder. Consumer states problem with the steering wheel column the consumer stated in the spring of 2009, she began having problems with the steering column making noises. The mechanic performed a wheel alignment, in addition to other work totaling over $660. However, she continued to experience steering problems. The consumer returned to the dealer where they replaced the brakes, but the steering column still was not feeling right. Finally, the consumer went to another establishment who was able to ascertain and fix the problem. The repair shop found the rack and pinion very tight and adjusted the steering gear. The consumer stated since Nissan only sent her an interim notice, she did not know she should have taken the vehicle to the dealer for a free service, nor did she know to inform the mechanic about the strut tower housing damage to the steering column.
