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.

muhahahah. the dumasses at the dealer had my dodge truck in for a repair and did i mention they were retarded. they pulled the truck into the shop for a diagnostic and disconnected the battery. when the battery was reconnected they pulled the truck out and said there was nothing showing on the report so i groggily paid the bill and was getin in my truck to drive away. and what do i find the reset the computer so that my seatbelt did not work so i walked back into the store and raised hell and so they went out and checked out my vehicle guess what they said. they said that my seat belt motors were blown and that i had to pay 250$$$$$ a seat to replace it so i said fu gotin in my truck left a 50 ft burnout on their lot and waved goodby with one of my fingers. 6 months down the road the motor in the seatbelts unlocked and it they started to work again.

well as fate may have it i need a part that only they offered and so i had to go back to the dealer. big fukin mistake as the dumbasses decided in order to put that electric side mirror in they needed to disconnect my battery again after i lectured them for 10 min on how if the battery was disconnected i would break their fingers. so after the mirror was in i got into my vehicle and found out that the system was reset again and the seatbelts didn't work again. so i walked back in and they told me that the motors were blown even after one of their mechanics used the seatbelts to drive my truck before they worked on it. i did what any pissed off customer would do raised hell then got back into my truck left a 75ft burnout beside the last one and gave them another friendly gesture with my special finger. and so it goes i got my seatbelts back in 6 months and have never gone back to that place.
