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.

Ram 1500

  • 102,000 miles


Dashboard of my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 is cracking all over. I am worried that the airbags will not function correctly if needed. Head lights are no longer staying put, if I hit a bump they move.

Ram 1500

  • 60,000 miles
The contact owns a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500. The contact stated that the defroster is inoperative, which reduces her visibility. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they replaced the evaporator box. One year later, the failure resurfaced. She took the vehicle back to the dealer and they stated that they could not identify the cause of the failure. Currently, the remedy has not been identified to properly correct the failure. The manufacturer referred her to a dealer. The failure mileage was 60,000 and current mileage was 71,000.
