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.

Left rear of quad cab not welded completely. Quad cab door and drivers' side door do not close completely. You can hear them rattle when driving. This was reported to two separate dealers and the factory representative and Chrysler corporation. They offered $500 for the defect. This is a safety defect as well as a value defect. We fear the drivers' side door may open, as well as the quad cab door, in an accident.
