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.

The entire hood of the truck seems to have sun burn as it is peeling off. The rest of the vehicle does not have the issue.

Dodge should step up and take care of this problem. They have known about it for sometime yet they won't do what other manufacturers will, and that is take care of their customer, even Toyota will take care of theirs. I will not buy a Dodge the next time I buy. It will more then likely be a Ford or Toyota.

Dodge is horrible about fixing problems. I've owned 2 dodge trucks the first one was flawless I love it. But when I decided to buy a 4x4 I made the huge mistake of purchasing this truck. The paint is bubbling up all over the entire truck. On the top of the cab the paint is all but gone.

I have brought it into Tobin Dodge and Boise Dodge both places let me know that even after 5 years on the first complaint that it wasn't in warranty. The guy in Boise told me that is defiantly defective paint. My father in law owned a body shop for 19 years and said the exact same thing....

Unless Dodge preforms a miracle and responds to this complaint I see a Ford in my future or even a Toyota.
