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.

Letter from daimler Chrysler informing me that my Dodge Dakota R/T, one of 7,000 made, that it can only tow 2,000 lbs. They marketing the truck at 6,800 lbs and have offered to refund $300 for tow package $0 for hd service group. The will not tell me what is wrong with my truck. Some owns have been offered a buy back. Chrysler is spose to contact me soon for a deal but, I can't find out what is wrong with my 1998 sport truck of the year that can now only tow as much as a Ford Ranger. Then it was rated highest in its class for towing capacity.
