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.

Ram 1500 SLT 4.7L V8

This truck sucks and has from the very beginning. It will be the last Chrysler product purchased by this family EVER! All Chrysler dealers couldn't fix a toy truck if their life depended on it. It was after we found an independent mechanic that repairs were properly made. Nearly everything in this truck has been replaced. Only fools would buy a Dodge.
