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.

2002 Dodge diesel turbo charged: While pulling up a hill in 95 degree outside temperature, towing a 5th wheel trailer, and acts like the turbo charger cut out while the engine continues to run without power. This does not happen in cooler temperature or while not towing. This is a danger that can lead to a very serious accident.
