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 seem to fix one thing and up pops another. struts, wheel bearings, rear end crankshaft, now camshaft. the idle arm i replaced that dodge said was my problem is doing the same noise again 2 1/2 months later. i later found out this is a problem you can't fix so tell me why you pay this much for a vehicle and you can ride in it without being embarrassed. that's ridiculous and whats so bad i own 3 chrysler vehicles

this is BS that i just bought a vehicle 90 days ago. and i am having problems with it already. the belt is squealing horribly and if that ain't the worst of it, when i opened the hood you can see the fan and all the way back wobbling. causing a horrible sound almost sounds like a grinding noise. I don't think i can get it to a dealer to work on it . Is there way that i could fix it myself........................

I have taken it to 3 different garages and to a custom Dodge motor-heads and still nobody can figure out what this squeak is. I have replaced the alternator, water pump, belts, pulleys and the bearrings and nothing has worked. When the truck is cold it squeaks when I idle but when its been running for a while it will stop when the truck stops, as soon as I step on the gas it squeaks and it continues to as long as I'm accelerating. Its not hurting the truck but its a pain in the ass to listen to. If anyone might know what the hell it is please feel free to give some advice, I will try whatever it takes, I love my Dodge..
