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.

Daimler Chrysler mailed a letter informing me of a recall on th 4E power distribution ccenter generator cable connection on my truck. My spouse took the truck to don marshell Dodge and service center. 716 North hwy 27 P.O. box1509, somerset, ky 42502, telephone # 606-678-8178. The truck was scheduled for another repair but my husband brought the letter and asked that the cable also be fixed. The service person looked a the letter, laid it down and said that they "looked' at it and it was fine. The service department refused to fix the cable. The letter that daimler chryler mailed regarding the recall stated that any complaint with the dealer regarding having the vehicle fixed should be directed toward this Agency.
