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 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 developed a vibration in the front end a about 35,000 miles. It was most noticeable at low speeds turning to the left. It got worse and by 50,000 miles began to appear at speeds from 45 mph and up. At 52,000 miles the dealer found that both cv joints were bad along with both upper and lower ball joints. Both cv joints, all four ball joints, and the lt front hub and bearings were replaced. I have the replaced parts except the cv joints which were returned to Chrysler.
