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.

Heard a squeaking noise coming from the front end, also could be felt in the steering wheel. Dealer said it was the sway bar links and ball joint, could result in control lost. To no avail these repairs did not solve the problem. Second opion said it was the steering rack. Replace right side mirror.

While traveling approx 50mph a pop was heard from beneath driver's feet. Continuous popping was heard and felt through the steering wheel. Popping occurred daily after approx. 10 minutes of driving. Local dealer test drove to locate problem and inspected vehicle and advised that the power rack and pinion needed to be replaced. Car is barely 2 years old and has not been driven harshly. Dealers in area stated they have several vehicles of this make/model having same problems and they are making many repairs to rack and pinion.
