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.

problem #1

The van is 3 years old, and has had the tough steering issue from the 6 month mark. I brought it to the dealer 4 times for same issue. Never found it till now! That's because the steering locked up and the serpentine belt SNAPPED while I was driving and I nearly crashed! They claim that had nothing to do with my steering issue. NOW they somehow found the cause, the steering rack and pump. Hmm.... that's covered under my extended warranty.

I do NOT trust Dodge and will not buy another product from them. I have multiple issues with this van, this is only entry #1!
