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 SLT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles

My Front brakes started rubbing metal to metal, truck had 43,000 miles and I had the brake pads replaced. After less than 10,000 problem came back. Was told that I need to replace the calipers, also had to have the brake pads replaced again, they were below 30 percent. Had this done today for over $900.00. I bought this truck used with 34,000 miles. Have my fingers crossed that problem is corrected.
