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.

1) started the car in parking lot and steering wheel broke off 2) could not drive, steering wheel fell. My wife and my 2 year daughter were in the car. Luckily no accident. ) towed the car to a Dodge dealer. At this time, daimler-Chrysler is evaluating what to do with the defect (to pay or not to pay). They have failed to provide proper service. It has been 3 weeks with no support on a rental nor a decision to repay the defect. Hence, the car is still at the dealer which causes a major inconvenience to my family.
