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.

problem #2

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • 120,000 miles


I was in a rollover accident on the date above and after rolling the truck 6 times the fuel didn't shut off to the truck and it was still running. I believe that the inertia switch malfunctioned and didn't shut off the fuel supply to the motor.
