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.

Dodge Ram 2004-5 quad cab, location of latch and anchor locations. The anchor location for the rear seat needs to be changed, the location is too close to the head and limits the ability to install the seat properly. Also an anchor needs to be added to the front seat, center.
