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.

Drivers side and passengers side mirrors shake/vibrate at highway speeds making it difficult to see approaching traffic.eventually this will cause a accident. I returned the vechicle to the dealer and had the drivers side mirrior replaced but this replacement suffered from the same shaking problems at highway speeds.I told the service rep. But he said they all ( Dodge pickups 1500-2500 series) suffer from the same problem and they are waiting for a tsb on the problem. I also have a friend with the same truck and the same problem.

Also gas mileage has not improved.
