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.

I have two open recalls on my vehicle, one for airbag that can rupturing and causing an accident or death and another for drive train pinion nut problem. I have received recall notices and no parts are available to fix my truck. I can't afford another vehicle right now so this truck is my daily driver and as I await from my dealer to call and set up an appointment to fix (when parts are available) I have to drive this possible death trap. Other trucks are being bought back, but not mine; I want this resolved now. I value my life and this wait is ridiculous. Help!!!

I was driving along in my Dodge 1500 quad cab that I purchased this past January in 2015 when the rear end of the vehicle locked up on me it slid for approximately 50 ft. When the drive shaft broke loose and folded in half and I ran it over which propelled me into the ditch I contacted the Dodge dealership and had the vehicle towed to advantge Dodge in mt. Dora where at first they tried to deny that it had anything to do with the recall P77 until they confirmed that the pinion nut came looseand that is what caused the incident.
