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 5.9L V8

was driving home from work and my front drivers side tire felt like it made my truck pull to the right. I pulled over took a look and didn't see anything wrong. Started drving again and the vehicle started pulling even worse and my front end jumped a couple of times. I had it towed and the mechanic told me it was the hub bearing kit. He said it had locked up. I now have to replace it and hope that the other side is not shot as well. this issue also caused my brake pads to cut my rotors all to hell. so now i have to replace my rotors as well. just trying to help others out. I know i helped another out with their durango as this was the same issue that was happening to them.
