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.

The contact owns a 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix. The contact stated that the steering wheel makes a clicking noise when it is turned. The dealer stated that the steering column metal was failing and the steering column rod will need to be replaced. The manufacturer acknowledged the steering failure with the GMC pick up trucks; however, they would not acknowledge that the failure also existed in the passenger vehicles. The vehicle exceeds the 36,000 mile warranty; therefore, the manufacturer would not assist. The part for the repair costs $107. The failure mileage was 30,000. Updated 05/19/08.
