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 2008 Dodge Charger was wrecked in April. The ABS light and esp (traction control) lights on the dash came on. The next thing I knew there was no brakes at low speeds. This had never happened before. I continued to my destination only a few miles away and planned to call a tow truck. As I tried to stop so I could get out to open a gate the car would not stop and I wrecked the car. There was nothing done to correct the failure. The car was totaled and nothing was ever done by Dodge or Chrysler to compensate for the problem. In fact I was told that the very moment the lights came on I should have stopped driving the vehicle and called the dealership. This would have been possible if I lived in a bigger city, but I live in the country with very little cell phone reception in some areas.
