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 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora has a re-occurring problem with a noise associated with the steering or front end, I am not sure which. It starts out as either a grinding or clunking sound when turning - notice it more as I am turning into my alley which is sort of a dip then a small rise from the street level. I have had it repaired at least three times since I bought the car new and it is starting to act up again. Of course it is out of warranty now so I can hardly wait to see what they try to tell/sell me on getting it repaired this time. All the other times, the dealership indicated they took something apart and greased it. It lasted for 15 - 20K miles or so and needed to be done all over again. I am not happy that a re-occurring problem is now my problem. I can only mark down the last incident on this report. I now have 69K+ miles on the car and I cannot remember all the dates of when each incident happened. But, suffice it to say about every 15 - 20K miles.
