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.

I really love my truck, as of the past few months without ac is getting unbearable in this south florida heat. Not to mention the cracked dash THAT DODGE STILL WOULD NOT GIVE THERE LOYAL CUSTOMER A RECALL ON THIS MATTER. Knowing that their product and they way they look is how it represent them and how they make their vehicles and how they look to the public. This also includes the paint on the hood and the top of cab is also fadding. WHAT DOES THAT SAY IN THE WAY THE MAKE THEIR VEHICLES. I have owned other older truck and cars and their paint nor dash has never faded or crack as bad as this truck has over the past few years.

see interior complaints. Heater coil was bad. Dealership replaced at the cost of the dash board cracking all over. They said they were not responsible. Imagine that!
