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.

The first time I took my Ram back to the dealer for a 85.00 alignment they hit me with the idler arm problem and of course my warranty had already expired. The total bill was 483.78. That was in 2001. I recently took it to a good friend of mine who has a shop to have look at the front end because it was pulling to the right again. It was the idler arm again. 450.00 With another alignment.
