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.

  • 60,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Ram 15000. The contact stated that while driving approximately 55 mph with the defroster activated, the air began to suddenly circulate only from the floor vents. There was a recall related to the failure under NHTSA campaign id number 09V158000 (equipment: Electrical: Air conditioner). The dealer refused to honor the recall due to a previous inspection performed under the same recall. At that specific time, there was no indication of a defect. The technician stated that the repair for the recent failure would be at the owner's expense. The vehicle had not been repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000.
