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 TRUCK STEPPED OUT IN CURVES AND WANDERED CONSTANTLY. HAD TO BE HYPER VIGILA NT WHEN DRIVIING, CHECKED THE ALIGNMENT. IT WAS OK. AT 35,965 MI. A FRIEND INFORMED THAT EVERY DIESEL COMMING OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE HAD A DEFECTIVE STEERING GEAR BOX. I TOLD THE DEALER THE ROOT CAUSE AND THEY REPLACE THE GEAR BOX AND TWO TRACK BARS. THEY BILLED CHRYSLER FOR THE REPAIR. $2,500 .AFTER 36,000 I WOULD'VE HAD TO PAY FOR IT. IT NEVER REALLY STEERED VERY WELL EVEN AFTER THE REPAIR.

Steering issue with the truck wandering. It is kind of white knuckle when pulling a load because of the wandering issue. The truck never had a good tight steering, but has been getting worse. I had new upper, and lower ball joints, front universals, track bar, and power steering pump installed. Had front end alignment, and still wanders. Scratching my head on what to try next. This is getting expensive, and frustrating to say the least.
