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.

My 1500hd super crew cab has had a harmonic rumble since the second week of ownership. It varies some with speed and load but can be felt through the floor into your feet and be heard easily at all times. It gets progressively louder until it is serviced. The dealer has worked on the problem 4 times in 5 months and it still has the problem. It will go back for a 5th visit this week.
