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.

Ohara motors - 5 star Dodge dealership in falmouth MA. Cannot fix my defective 03 hemi Ram. Truck was bought new from them last year, and has been back to the dealership twice for the sme 2 problems - and each time I have had to take the truck back with the problem not being fixed. Truck has had a ticking sound that has gotten so loud, it now sounds like a sewing machine at idle. Also, truck has a driveline vibration that has gone from subtle, to extremely and obnoxiously bad. Ohara says that Chrysler may have a solution in 90 days or so, and that I have to live with this! I want my money back, I have lost time at work, money, and lots of aggravation. I feel with a 7 yr.70K warranty, I should not have to 'live' with this problem. Please help me!
