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 olds Intrigue had a clunking noise from the front steering and a shimmy when it was turned to the right. GM resolved it by greasing the intermediate shaft and said it was a "stiction" problem. If that is the case then they only delayed the fix and some time in the future I will have to spend $150 to get it "fixed" again. They either need a seal to retain the grease in this area or a means of servicing this part as opposed to asking the consumer to pay for their poor design practice. Has NHTSA looked into the amount of wear in this joint on the vehicles with a "lack of lubricant" which can actually impact the steering operation of the vehicle?
