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.

Ram Van 3500

Vehicle: 1998 Dodge B1500 Ram van problem: At less than 40,000 miles I was told by a tire dealer that my upper ball joints were shot and that I should take the vehicle repair shop to have them replaced before the front end could be aligned. At 60,000 miles I finally decide to have it repaired. Not only was the ball joints bad, but one side had come loose in the upper control arm, and destroyed the threads and was floating free in the control arm. I consider this to be a serious saftey hazard. I am interested if this is a common complaint with this vehicle or not. By doing some research on the internet I see multiple complaint on other Dodge vehicles. Thank you for your attention. Joseph scheibenpflug
