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.

I have been locked out of my 2005 Dodge 2500 truck with the engine running. The lock assembly on the truck became non-operational with the key and door handle. Even with a spare key, it was useless. I had to call my wife to bring me the extra fob ( electronic door opener) to get in the truck. A contributing fact was that there was not a lock on the passenger handle. My question is what would happen if the vehicle was a standard model without a fob? the dealership said that they have seen this happen several times. By the way, my dealer was very helpful. But what about other instances of this occurring.
