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 2001 Dodge 3500 Ext. Cab dually has a terrible transmission problem. I have been out approximately $6,000 dollars in repairs. Everyone I talk to, including transmission shops, says these transmissions are trash. There should have been a recall years ago. Everything else about the truck is good. Transmission sucks!

This was probably the worst because I was about 6 hours away from home.
