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.

I have replaced the front brakes 3 times it only has 48,000 miles. This last time they lasted 6,000 miles. They devolep blue heat spots on the rotors. The repair shop said when Dodge took weight out of the front end they decreased the size of rotors. I have replaced the outer tierod twice. The repair shop stated Dodge reducing the weight in front end.
