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 2004 Dodge Dakota. The front passenger side air bag sensor has been recalibrated one time. When a passenger or object is seated in the seat, the air bag light dims. The dealer stated that the sensor needed to be recalibrated each time the failure occurred, according to a federal law. The dealer charged $100 for each recalibration. The powertrain and failure mileage were unknown. The current mileage was 27,129. Updated 06/09/2008.
