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 purchased the car in August 2004. Several months after the purchase I took the vehicle back to the dealership because I heard a clunking noise coming from the front of the vehicle when making a right or left hand turn. After the car was serviced, the dealership explained that GM is well aware of the issue (the dealership had received a notice from GM) but that a recall had not yet been done on the vehicle for this issue. The dealership said it had to do with a mount bracket that needed be torqued. If the bracket became too loose it could separate causing the driver to loose steering. I was never told that I would have to periodically take the vehicle back in to be serviced for this but yet again several months later I am beginning to hear the clunking. The steering also seems much more loose than it previously did. I also am beginning to hearing a clicking noise in the steering column, along with the clunk. I do feel this is a serious problem with this vehicle that GM should definitely be held accountable for.
