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 have noticed since purchasing this vehicle that the rear axle traction control seems to constantly slip when accelerating at any speed, I first thought that this was normal for the vehicle, but it is always engaging no matter what speed your doing. It seems as though it is not working properly, no matter what kind of surface your driving on. I've tried it in four wheel drive, and the truck seems to be ok, I don;T think the anti slip axle is working properly.

I received a safety recall (N08/NHTSA 13V-038 rear axle pinion nut) I received this notice months ago. I have contracted the manufacturer multiple times. Each time I get told the part is not available yet. After months, why would the part not be available? it was nice to get the notice, but is there an office that follows up on these recalls to make sure the manufacturer is actually addressing the issue. Thank you for any assistance you can provide on this issue.
