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.

There was a smell of hot coolant anytime we were driving. I took it to the dealer and they said there was bad connection on the heater hose assembly and it would be $525 to fix. Upon investigation in the Dodge forums, this is an issue that is happening on a regular basis due to the heater hoses being directly above the exhaust collector and is causing the rubber to fail and thus causing coolant leaks. Best case is it smells when the coolant is leaking on the exhaust, worst case is people are getting stranded due to overheating. Dodge claims this is not covered under warranty.
