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.

These trucks have a common problem with the HVAC blend/mode door. The doors break and then fall down into the HVAC system and block airflow to the defrost vents. This can cause a major visibility issue with you cannot defrost your windshield. The warm air will only blow through the floor or face vents, not the defrost. Windshield becomes iced or covered in snow and cannot melt to see. This is a very common problem on Dodge trucks and numerous other owners have experienced the same problem. Chrysler needs to recall this as a safety issue.
