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.

Outlook 6-cyl

Bought this vehicle used in November of 2012. Noticed that the steering wheel is noisy (a squeaky noise). Eventually when I do U-turns the steering wheel gets stiff but still manageable to steer the vehicle although it's totally stiff to turn. Then lately most of the time when going in and out of a parking lot it seems I totally lost the power steering or perhaps the power steering locks up because it's really hard to turn the steering wheel. Brought it to a former Saturn dealer and they said the power steering pump and rack is busted and needs to get repaired. Their quote to replace the parts and labor is about $1,500.

Service airbag warning on dash display. Took car into local GM dealership in December 2011. Service rep. Stated diagnostics revealed a bad airbag wiring harness and a malfunctioning air pressure sensor in one tire. The service department jerry rigged the wire harness to disable the dash warning and ordered parts. Service dept. Replaced the faulty parts the following week. 1/2/2012 service airbag warning on dash display again. Have an appointment to get car serviced.
