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.

My 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 steering shudders uncontrolably when you hit a bump at highway speeds. Directional control is difficultwhile this is happening. The dealership says that one other customer is having the same problem. They thought that they had fixed it by replacing the steering dampener, but he had it happen again and spun out of control.
