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

I have a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup truck- the dashboard is reflected onto the windshield and impairs vision, especially when it is sunny and makes it hard to see clearly through the windshield. I have had four other trucks of the exact same size etc. But never had a vision problem from the dashboard being superimposed onto the windshield.
