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

  • 49,847 miles
I received a formal recall notice (P77/NHTSA 14V-796) which stated a safety concern with my truck's rear pinion nut that may come loose or fall off. When I called our local Dodge dealer in westerly, Rhode Island they told me they wouldn't have the corrective parts for about 2-3 months" this being a safety concern and my second notice from Chrysler why are parts not available" it seems I have two recalls in an open status and can't get either one repaired by Chrysler at this time. A concerned Chrysler owner.
