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.

problem #2

Ram 1500 8-cyl

Fully turning the steering wheel right or left causes the tire(s) to rub on the shock hangar. This shreds rubber off the inside sidewalls of the tires. I ruined 2 tires and was lucky one or both did not blow out and cause an accident while I was driving. I have not had it fixed yet. I'm trying to find out if this has been reported before, so I can contact Dodge.
