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.

problem #4

At 26,000 miles the blend door for the air system broke (part # 68004226-ab). This caused the vents to be stuck in one position and could not get the defrost to work which became a safety issue since I could not defrost/defog the windshield. The part was replaced under warranty. I am now at 52,000 miles and the same part needs to be repaired again. This time out of warranty and at a cost of $740.

My recirculation door on my 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 broke the other night for no reason other then adjusting the ac controls. It seems that this seems to be a common problem caused by the recirculation door actuator putting to much torque on the plastic door. I only have 6,00 miles on the truck right now.
