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.

Consumer was backing out of the garage and the steering wheel failed. Consumer was unable to turn or move the vehicle. Consumer had the vehicle towed to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic determined that the steering pump/housing shaft, and bolt needed to be replaced.

Power steering failure. When pulling out of a tight parking place the power steering started making noises. After exiting the parking place the power steering is sluggish, but not all of the time. This is a safety issue as some time you can turn with no problem, other time it takes additional effort to move the steering. You never know what to expect!! I suppose it could totally fail at any time also!! the Oldsmobile garage (burke) has ordered a new power steering pump and will install it next week at a cost of five hundred and ninth four dollars to me. They say there have been no recalls or service bulletins on this problem. Old parts will be available when removed next week.
