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.

Ram 2500 8-cyl

Vehicle went into the dealership for repairs/replacement of the gas tank straps and also the exhaust straps. Was notified by dealership that the frame was rusted and they were able to put their fist through the hole. Car was never in a situation were rust like that could have occurred. At this time they are stating that straps are not covered due to rust. The dealership repaired the frame by welding a plate over the hole. Not sure how safe that is.
