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.

The dodge dealership replace upper & lower ball joints. Fact is the ball joints have been replaced 4x, last time was around 88,000 miles. Replaced u-joints, most of steering linkage and bushings, stabilizer shock and numerous alignments. Total cost so far is approx. $4,000.00 and problem still exists. Dealership solution is to trade in. They say it is normal for that many ball joints replaced. I disagree and had some choice words for them which I will not use here. Truck is not abused with lots of off road and do not snow plow. mileage around 104,000 now and still a royal pain in butt. Come On Dodge, Whats up this?
