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.

problem #1

Ram 1500 Magnum 5.2L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


My 97 dodge ram 1500 has a major problem with the lights. I am the second owner of this vehicle the origanl owner said it started a few years after he bought the truck. when i was driving the night right after buying the truck. I moved the steering wheel down to the lowest position the lowbeems went out and I wasn't able to see a thing luckly the high beems worked. it wasnt till the next day that i had found out that it was from moving the position of the steering wheel that i figured out what it was. so i went on line to see what it was and found that there are a lot of these trucks doing the same thing. that could have been a lot worse. Something like this should have a recall on it.
