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.

AHHHH, I'm really starting to dislike Dodge. It seems like something breaks once a month! My sunglass holder will not stay up for nothing. I've even tried putting velcro up but it doesn't hold either! I've learned to deal with it but its very annoying and I've hit my head on it several times! =(

sunglass holder broken. I like my dodge on the outside it looks great. I take care of my cars and it is important to me that they are presentable. on the inside, it looks like crap. all of the plastic is broken. dash, cup holder, dash bezel, this has got to make the value of the truck go way down. I would not by a truck that looks like mine on the inside. i think it is sad the all of the work that went into making my truck, it looks good and has carried anything that I could pile on it, but the crappy plastic ruined this truck. dodge should ask for a bigger bail out. I will not by another dodge.

dodge should get away from the cheap plastic. why make a nice truck and then put cheap plastic in it? I am willing to pay a few extra dollars just stop cutting corners.

sunglasses holder broken

Fixed it once in 2002 and it has broke again in 2005. The plastic clasp that locks it closed gets fatigued due to opening and closing and temperature and just breaks. It is a piece of crap. I love Dodge but they sure had an inferior plastic vender in 01. Probably made in China and they left the bonding agent out and put it in our food instead! Same problem with the dashboard. It is cracked majorly and in pieces.
