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.

Bought car new. Rear lower control arm bushings have failed twice on this car and during my last inspection the passengers side bushing was starting to tear and fail again. A local Dodge dealer still inspected the car after Firestone would not due to safety the safety issues of a failed control arm bushing. First failure happened at around 25,000 mi. And second around 40,000 mi. They will be replaced again during next years safety inspection done at Firestone this time. This car is garbage.
