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.

Pulled out of a parking space at work and was unable to complete a "normal" turn radius. Thought it was just the turn radius of the vehicle that I was'nt familiar with. Later that same day, pulled into my driveway the same way I have may times with this vehicle and noted the same turn restriction. Steering wheel was bound up internally. I applied more steering pressure at this point and felt a snap inside the steering wheel followed by the illumination of the airbag light. Vehicle scheduled for warranty repair at the cherry hill Dodge dealership, cherry hill NJ, on 06 July 2001.
