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

  • Automatic transmission

Dashboard has been cracking in approximately 5 places for over a year, and was getting worse. I am worried that it will eventually form a hole and sink, destroying other electrical components and wires, etc., and if this should happen, causing safety problems.*

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The dash board in my 2003 Dodge Ram is cracking. I didn't think much if it, until I saw on the news that others were doing the same and continuing to collapse until there are electrical problems, such as head lights turning off.
