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.

driver side brake line off of caliper corrosion at connection

There should be a safety check on all brake line connections to the left and front caliper and the rear too. This may be a safety issue that could fail while traveling and cause a davastating effects if in traffic and the loss of brake fluid - due to a rupture line- should bleed out and the your vehicle would have grave issue stopping. Please pass on to the Dodge Safety Board to insure the message is sent to all Dodge Truck drivers to check their brake lines at caliper to minor brake leak and bulging lines that make be on the verge of failure.
