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 2009 2500 hd Dodge Ram diesel pickup has been in for the following warranty work from the day of purchase of 7/14/2009: Transmission - 11 times emergency brake - 2 times cab heater - 3 times A/C - 3 times diesel fumes in cab - 2 times exhaust brake - 2 times egr valve - 2 times O2 sensor & filter - 3 times excessive brake wear - 1 time main control module - 9 times fan blower motor - 3 times block heater - 1 time truck lights - 2 times check engine light - 3 times tire pressure monitors - 2 times tow/haul mode - 2 times fuses - 1 time change oil light - 1 time recall - 1 time the list of problems above have not been repaired under the warranty. The computer system that controls the entire truck does not work properly. Diesel fumes still come in the cab. The emissions systems do not work properly. Per the onboard computer the truck now only gets 16.5 - 16.9 mpg well under the rated mpg. There has been one recall to date regarding the computer system that is still a problem.
