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.

Another example of Dodge junk. Never buy another. 68,500 miles and driven pretty much just on weekends. Well maintained. Total money pit. From rockers falling off (#4 cylinder last week) & (#3 cylinder the other day)- very frustrating. Typically dump about $1,000 per year into fixing various mechanical issues, which are a direct result of an inferior design and poor American workmanship.

The For Sale sign goes on this weekend. Next up: Toyota Tundra.
