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. Notes: The 2002 has the well-known and documented problem with their dashboards falling to pieces, but it also has engine failure from oil sludge. That's a doube shot of awful in your morning coffee.

I have had gas gauge problems since the truck was new, & have taken it in the the dealer ship multi times for warranty repair. Now my truck is under Dodges extended warranty, they say they know what it is & need of course $$$$ to fix! Also found out thru my brother which has a fleet of 2003-2005 Dodge trucks that they have the same issue--Dodge sends then a new gas tank gauge unit to fix, but it doesn't fix most of them!! This should be a 100% factory recall issue!!
