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.

frame rust

The frame rust/rot it is most significant on the passenger side in front of the rear tire, below the bench seat. The lower portion of the frame beam is separating from the beam. We have an appointment for a frame specialist to look at the truck to determine if the issue area can be bracketed and welded with fresh metal. Mechanic said to not plan on a long term relationship with the truck. We have already repaired the fender rot around the wheel wells, and the tailgate is showing significant rust too. Have never owned a vehicle that rusts like this one.
