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.

What is with Dodge on the Ram pickup? First it was the dash falling to pieces now it's the paint falling off. Let me see, the last time I checked I have them $28,000 for a pickup that did not have manufacturing defects. They should fix this problem!
