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.

  • 36,000 miles
Vehicle has roughly 36000 miles, when braking the steering shakes hard, vibrating. Worried one day one of my tires is going to fall off or the steering stop working and loose control of the vehicle. Even Dodge has issued a technical service bulletin for this exact problem, the dealership won't do anything about it because they say it is not covered under warranty but admits that it is a design flaw with the vehicle being built with substandard parts.
