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.

Front end has banging noise on every turn and every bump, Dodge said they only do the recall once. When my front end falls off, then I call the lawyer.

At 40,000 miles, I have abnormal tire wear and popping sounds again. The dealer says they will check it out again, but will charge $85 if it is not recall related. I will be towing a 6500lb camper in 2 weeks and am a little worried. I can look at the wheels and tell there is too much positive camber.

I purchased this SUV brand new and within a few months I head popping noises coming from the front tires, I took back in and they said that the factory did not grease the joints. After several other instances, they finally said the ball joints were bad and replaced them. Then it started all over and I had to have them replaced again along with the arm. In all I have taken it in at least 5 times for the same issue. Now that my warranty has expired, they need replacing again and Dodge will not give me any service allowance for repairs. I have complained the them about this to no avail. There was a letter sent out over a year ago extending the warrany on ball joints to 100,000, which I already had and it has expired. the last time I had them changed was at 90,000 miles and now I have 125,000 and they are bad again... If this is not a sign of a major defect I dont know what is and they wont issue a recall even though there have been several complaints. My only choice now is to try and have it declared a Lemon.
