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.

Steering wheel will move back and forth as if a surge of pressure. This causes vehicle to become difficult to handle. Vehicle has been to dealership twice with out correction they say that it is fine.

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13 miles
On my brand new 2005 Toyota Tacoma quad cab long bed pickup truck the power steering failed without warning while making a turn across traffic, making steering the vehicle very difficult and nearly causing me to collide with oncoming traffic. Toyota is in the process of replacing the entire power steering system including all of its component parts.
