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.

This has been a problem on and off for 2 years. Dealer unable to find problem. While driving our 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 pick up this last weekend, as we accelerated in traffic, the truck engine choked and then began to stall. We had just turned on to the highway when the engine power began to fail for the fifth time. We were almost hit by on coming traffic due to the engine failure.
