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 down the road at 15mph and the TPMS light and traction light flashed on the dash and than I started smelling smoke and hearing a loud high pitched noise, car stopped in middle of road creating a hazard, I got out quickly and popped the hood and smoke flew out of the alternator area. Took car in and Dodge is trying to charge $790 to fix this very common issue on the 3.6 2012 Dodge Charger SE.
