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.

About 1:00 pm on September 26th I opened the front drivers side door on my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 hemi, swb quadcab laramie to look fro some papers. The outside temperature that day was abut 80 degrees. I then pressed the unlock door button to release the lock on the rear drivers side door. I closed the drivers side front door and then opened to drivers side rear door. After looking for some papers I closed the rear drivers side door. At the exact instance the door closed I heard a moderate popping noise. I looked into the truck bed and saw tinted glass and realized that the rear window had popped out. The passenger side of the rear window had shattered into many pieces. I contacted the dealer where I had purchased the vehicle and they had me to bring the vehicle in so that they could take pictures and to send to Chrysler for determination if the window would be covered under mfr's vehicle warranty. I took the vehicle in on September 27th. Awaiting an answer.
