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 was driving home from work and another vehicle was merging onto the highway on the inside shoulder. I made a normal lane change to avoid getting T-boned and my steering locked up causing me to spin out and hit a guardrail.

There is a paint booth issue at the factory in Ontario Canada. My redline 3 pearlcoat has bumps all over the body paint job. Its like the booth was dirty and it either globbed off the end of a sprayer or it was really dirty inside but I did not see it until after I purchased it. I paid an extra $995 for this so wtf over? orange peel and you name it. Does not look like a factory paint job unless it was Monday or Friday I guess! I hate that when you call Dodge corporate they could give a rats [xxx]! one lady said "we don't care we don't sell the vehicles we just make them" I said seriously so you make a product but don't stand behind it [xxx]! none of them care, even after dropping $50K so yeah.

I was traveling in the center lane of the hwy, going approx 60 mph when the car in the left lane a red Chevy Impala sideswiped a SUV behind me, at that time the red Chevy lost control of his car and hit me in the drivers side rear quarter panel, that spun my car, I then hit the guard rail went back across 3 lanes of traffic hit the car that hit me and stopped near the shoulder of the airbags deployed, my wife's head smacked the passenger window and ended up with a major concussion, and other injuries.
