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.

all of the passengers are unable to roll up or down their windows regardless of the window lock on or off. and then the other day none of the windows would roll up even from the drivers side. i shut of the ignition and turned back on and then i was able to roll them up.

when opening any door there is a rubber tube protecting the wires that go in the door. those wires that control the windows are about 20 gauge wire not much bigger than a hair strand THEY ALL SHORTED OUT one after another within four months three doors out of four had not control except the drivers door. What a pain when driving opening and closing everyones windows.

Like a lot of other complaints, this truck has been nothing but a piece of CRAP!!! It was a good truck for about a year. Then everything started going wrong with it, starting with the normal wear and tear, then things that nobody can figure out what is causing the problems to down right everything not working and still nobody can can figure it out.
