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.

problem #2

Ram 2500 8-cyl

  • 147,000 miles


Driving down the highway hood flew open at 65 mph. I had been driving the truck for several hours previously never touched the hood latch release arm in the truck in fact the hood had not been open in several weeks. I think there are still faulty hood latches out there on some of these trucks and the owners need to be notified.
