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.

i took my car in had transmission replaced , just before warranty on new transmission was to expire, going down the freeway doing 67mph, the car went into what is called limp home mode, that is when the car suddenly drops into a lowest gear this is to help the transmission from further damage, but in doing so caused the car to suddenly jerk to slow , blowing my engine, which i was still making payments on ....... well i got the transmission since it was under warranty replaced which was great only thing is now i cannot drive it . . ..... DODGE SUCKS , I WILL NEVER GET ANYTHING FROM THIS FUKED UP DEALER AGAIN, I GOT OTHER THINGS DONE AS WELL IN TOTAL I HAVE SPENT OVER $ 10,000 FOR A USED CAR THAT I GOT TO PUT A TOTAL OF 50, 000 MILES ON , I LOST MY HOUSE , DUE TO NOT HAVING A CAR ....
