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.

Grand Prix 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

While making either a left or right hard turn the steering fails. After working the steering wheel back and forth it becomes free again. This has only happen at low speeds so far. After checking with the dealership I found out that this is a common occurrence and customers pay to have the knuckle at the rack and pinion replaced. There was a recall on the same item for 1996 through 1998 cars exhibiting the same problems. Would you please investigate further.
