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.

  • 65,000 miles


Speedometer is erratic. Started at approximately 65,000 miles. Speedometer maxes out, does not work or reads improperly. Dealer informed me that the 03 and 04 models have a recall on the stepper motor but the 05 model does not have a recall. The speedometer does not function properly 90% of the time. Do not know exactly how fast the vehicle is going. Vehicle has approximately 72,000 miles now and the problem still exists. Dealer said that a replacement would cost approximately $500 to fix. Who can afford this after paying for a $35,000 vehicle. Especially after having the steering shaft replaced numerous times, new intake gaskets, catalytic converters, blower motor wires smoked and melted. Just a junky truck for the high price.
