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.

(reported on)

Ram 1500 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles

Had to replace the steering gearbox twice, the first one was a refurbished part which was not covered under any kind of warranty from the auto parts store, and broke within 4k miles after it was replaced, the mounting bolts broke, which required me to obtain a whole new steering gearbox. Took it into the shop, and replaced it again, noticing some minor steering problems again after 15k miles of use.
