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.

Driving down road and hood flew open on my 2001 Dodge 2500. Hood and latches bent back obstructing view completely. Traffic was light on a usually busy road which prevented further problems.

The contact owns a 2001 Dodge Ram 2500. While driving at an unknown speed, the hood latch failed. As a result, the hood flew backwards and nearly shattered the windshield. The dealer stated that he may not have closed the latch properly; however, the contact disagrees. The vehicle was not included in a recall. The failure mileage was 79,000.
