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 am curious to the concern that I should have about my 2006 Dodge. I have had 3 recalls on my vehicle since its purchase. One for airbag issues, one for a seat belts, and the most recent one for ball bearing issues that could allow the front wheels to become loose and fall off of the vehicle. All of these are life changing events if they happen. How many recalls can one vehicle have?

My truck was included in recall: NHTSA campaign id number : 07V038000 which states: Remedy: Dealers will replace the front hub and bearing units... however, when the dealership performed the recall (daimler Chrysler recall no. G02) they listed no replacement parts related to wheel bearings, it appears they merely added more lube to the bearing housings. Searching Dodge's recall database for my VIN now shows that recall completed. Did NHTSA leave it to the dealers discretion to decide if they wanted to replace the front hub and bearing units vs. Just put a bit more grease in them" or did NHTSA direct them to replace the hubs"
