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.

New rotor and pinion estimated replacement cost $900. When I turn the wheel hard it will squeak/hoot sound that makes you cringe. I've been driving on it for about 6 months with it progressively getting worse. Shop said I shouldn't leave town as eventually I won't be able to turn the wheel. I'm hoping to sell before having to fix and put money into an older car. Also had an issue with engine light on at same time and needing new coils.
