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 Sport 9.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles


Started noticing a wet floorboard after a rain. Took it to repair shop and after several hours of testing they found the rear window to be leaking. Spoke with a dodge dealer and they said it was a common thing. Usually it was the third brake light. I replaced the gasket and it still leaks. It seems to come in were the seem is that goes across the roof. What makes this really bad is the weather strip is built into the window so you have to replace the entire thing!! This is rediculous what could have been an inexpensive fix cost me over 500 dollars.
