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.

As of April 4 2008 this will have been the most severe of my front brakes not releasing and making the truck shake. Calipers and rotors were extremely hot.I think this should have been a recall from Dodge because danger of brakes locking up or fading altogether causing an accident. It's been a great truck other than this.
