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 went to have the front end aligned about a year ago. The mechanic said he did the best that he could do due to the frame rusting out and it would cost more to fix it than it's worth. He said to monitor and keep an eye on it if it starts cracking it will be unsafe to drive. Well its been almost a year and now the frame is cracking and afraid to drive an awesome looking ride now. Basically not fixable. Also spent about 6000 in repairs prior to finding out about the frame issue. Runs very well just driving it around town

, and short trips here recently since the frame is literally cracking. Guess I will let it sit down at the marina and use it to take the boat in, and out of the water until the steering completely goes out and frame breaks in two. Now it has 85,000 miles on it two years ago it has 50,000 miles on it. Do not buy a Dodge.
