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

  • Automatic transmission

This problem with the power seat is very unsafe and it is a good thing that i'm am somewhat mechanically incline and thought to pull the fuse out just as i could see the smoke and the white harness under the seat was red just ready to ignite so just picture if it would have been someone that is not m.incline and would not think of pulling the fuse I guarantee a fire would break out under the drive seat...This is a big safety hazard and I think there should be a recall.
