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.

unable to steer unable to steer unable to steer

I was backing out of my parking spot at home and I heard a loud pop, pop and then horrible grinding. I lost all ability to steer, I hopped out and had a look the first thing I noticed under the car was the pitman arm completely separated from the center link. Upon further investigation I noticed the steering box had broken loose from the side all 3 bolts snapped off and were just hanging there. I am beyond grateful that this happened at less than 1 mile per hour, otherwise the consequences to my 11 year old son and myself may have been dire. I have called around to shops, and looked on the internet and this seems to be a common problem. My question is why has Dodge done nothing about it??? This is a life threatening problem.
