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.

Ram 1500

  • miles
On two separate occassions, evap components, (vapor cannisters) attached to the frame underneath the passenger seating on the right side of the vehicle have been damaged due to road hazard and are not covered under warranty. Their location makes them susceptible to damage and they are expensive to replace and are not repairable.
