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.

Dodge has a real issue with the rear differential. Can we get together and make some noise?

Bought the vehicle used from Security Dodge in Amityville NY. Took the truck right back for the drive train noise. At first they said it was common them they took in the truck and rebuilt the rear, as soon as I left I heard the same noise and took the truck back. Mechanic said he does not hear anything, so then I make another appointment and leave the truck a few days nicely saying please just fix it, they so called rebuild the rear again. Guess what the noise is still there so they say they need to order me a transfer case and I would have to bring the truck back. I did and I hope the case was changed because it was free anyway noise still there after that. Went to another dealer they did not want to get involved , so I got discouraged and did not pursue the problem for a while. A year and a half later I take it to a third dealer and these guys seem to be going out of their way to resolve my problems. If you need service in NY I recommend Thomas Dodge on RT 112 in PortJefferson Ny.
