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 SLT 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


I took my Dodge Rumble Bee to a shop to have the heating system looked at. After it was looked at by a certified mechanic I was told that the heater box was going bad and that it would be at least $1000 to get it fixed. It was funny because there was another dodge truck that was there before I arrived and I was told that they were having the same problem. It is a pain in the ass because we live in Michigan and even with the heat running there is constant cold air coming through the vents and the minute you turn off the heat it becomes unbearable to be in the truck because you have very cold air hitting your legs at all times

A/C and heater would not work when driving under 15 mph. In Florida you have to have a/c to live.
