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.

Intermittent problem. Truck (2006, 3500 quad cab dually) sometimes acts like the brakes are not releasing or the transmission is not engaging for a few seconds when accelerating from a complete stop. Took it to a local dealer (orange park Dodge in jacksonville, fl. Who could not replicate the problem. I had someone tell me that they knew someone in la. That had the same problem and their dealer knew exactly what was wrong and affected repairs. Unfortunately I don't remember who that was.

: the contact stated intermittently while shifting into reverse, the transmission acted like it was in neutral. The vehicle was taken to the dealership, who determined this was how the vehicle was manufactured.
