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.

While driving in a rain shower the air bag light and warning sound occurred. Called Dodge factory representatives and reported this issue. . . they told me that there was nothing they could help me with this occurrence I answered back to them that I felt helpless about driving a vehicle that the air bag system wouldn't deploy or activate if I was in a frontal crash, which is happening so often in highway or freeway pileup crashes. Had to pay big money to fix their problem. Reported this incident NHTSB on their website.

I had a problem with my heater core (cracked) which I had repaired a few months ago. I am not complaining about that for a truck of this age I expect maintenance issues with use. What was scary is that my mechanic said that when he took out the dash he inspected the drivers side airbag and found it to be defective. He stated that it could have deployed at any time without impact.

While nothing happened, it is scary to think that it could have and the consequences,
