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.

Defroster stop blowing on windshield, however, it would blow out other vents, tech found that the mode 2 actuator had an internal open circuit, dealer removed and replaced the mode 2 actuator. I submitted documentation for reimbursement since this is a known problem. [xxx]. my claim was denied, I was told my vehicle did not have a recall. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Ram 1500

As I was approaching truck moving same direction in other lane (4 lane divided) it had a rack on top with metal siding on it not tied down cause the wind caught it a it came right into my path. I brake and steered right. And it was all over. I took it to dealer told them that it was not right they checked had not heard of any problems. Then it happend again doing 65 I was sideways into on coming traffic in split second and stopped within 150 feet if I had not counter steered as fast as anyone could. In both cases it would have rolled. Told dealer it should not be on the road. They wanted to test drive my rt truck and see if they could get it sideways I told them not on my insurance or without a test track and a wet skidpad and roll cage. Bottom line my truck is unsafe and have been waiting for something to happen. I do not drive it nowhere but work with both hands on the wheel and stability control off. I think the computer that senses a skid is not right like it made the wrong tire lock up. My truck has done it twice. Bet it can again if you want to check. Please get on this before some one is hurt or worse like I told the dealer. It could have been your wife and kids in the truck or on the road coming at a truck that was out of control and no fault of there own. I know how test for this problem.
