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.

So I buy this truck and go to show it off to the wife and family! One of the first of many things that happen is that when they get into my truck, the grab handle on the passenger side pulls right off the pillar. I tried everything I could to fix it but managed to just get it back on and tell people not to use it! I loan the truck to my dad one day and he used the one on the driver side to get into the truck. It too pulls off the pillar and he tumbles out of the truck and hurts himself. I have tried again to put it back on, but this thing is not looking good. I just open the door and dive in and hope I don't smack my shins getting in...anyone else have this pleasure? DODGE in the Webster Dictionary Revised Version "To Avoid, to steer clear from" <------ I should have listened!
