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.

On Feb. 27,2008 I had to have both tie rod ends replaced on my 2006 Chrysler 300. During my auto shop's search for replacement parts we discovered that the Dodge dealer in worcester MA. Had 174 tie rod ends on backorder. This leads me to believe that if there is no recall maybe there should be.
