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.

While driving the consumer noticed that smoked was coming from the rear. The vehicle started to vibrated uncontrollably.

Fuel lift pump failure could cause a serious accident, loss of power will cause loss of brakes, power steering, and control. Thousands of failures have occurred, the failed part is on national back order due to the large number of system failures. Chrysler/Dodge has not addressed this issue!!!
