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.

I was driving my car to an auto parts store to see if they could tell me why my steering kept going to the left side and because I kept hearing a popping noise, while at the auto store they looked under the hood and the man told me looked like the frame was rusted, and not to drive it, after calling a tow truck the tow truck driver looked under the car and said the engine crossmember bar /cradle was rusted out which held the rack and pinion steering, towed it to an auto body place which informed me to call General Motors, called General Motors they told me to take it to a GM dealership, and it is now at a General Motors dealership, waiting to see what General Motors is going to do, dealership also confirmed that the engine crossmeber bar was completely rusted out, which is why the steering went haywire.
