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.

Power steering lines under the clamp that bolts to the drivers side strut tower have rusted through due to moisture and vibration causing a loss in fluid damaging the pump. After doing a search I found numerous posts about this same issue on the trailblazer, Envoy and Saab. Poor design and lack of quality caused the failure.
