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.

One day in the summer of 2007, I noticed a small crack in the dashboard of my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500. Later, many cracks appeared and portions of the dashboard have actually fallen through into the electrical components and gauges. This has caused a few instances of the lights and gauges to malfunction at times.
