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.

problem #1

Aug 012010

Ram 3500 LST Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,000 miles


Had to replace rear brakes and one hub with only 29,000 miles on truck.(not hard miles either) When i took it for repair the man told me that he had never seen a truck as new as mine with that much rust under it and that everything had to be forced off to fix. Wanted to know if it had been setting in water for a time. Which it has not. He also took me back and show me the rust on the under side.That is when i saw on one of the fenders it said made in Mexico. I know that some parts come from different places but i don't think much of my truck was made in the USA. Which is one of the reasons i bought a Dodge in the first place.How can you help support jobs in the USA when nothing is made here anymore.
