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.

The contact owns a 2001 Dodge Dakota. The contact stated that the engine began shutting off and the check engine light illuminated. The dealer replaced the fuel pump. The door hinges began coming apart on the driver side door, and the middle of the door also began to rip. The dealer would not assist with the repairs until after the warranty expired.
