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.

would start truck and would run for 5-10 seconds and would die, took 20 times to get through a red light then got hit in intersection by vehicle behind me when truck died, took to dodge dealer and they could not fix problem, so left truck set for over a year till finally found repair shop that fixed it.
