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.

I just bought this truck from a local dealership, i paid almost $6,000 for it it is a 1998 dodge durango. my 4 kids and i were on the way home, and we heard a "weird" noise like a thudding- not a tick it was like thump, thump, thump. I returned the truck to the dealership in the morning and told him of this noise, he then told me to go to his CAR X mechanic. so i did so, there mechanic listened and proceeded to tell me the injectors were pulsating and my exhaust was clunking. hmmmmmm??? my exhaust is nice and firm and from i know u should not hear injectors "trying to work".

I explained to the dealership- I live 35 minutes out of town, i have 4 children and the NEED for a reliable vehicle is imperative!

He " politely " sent me on my way.
