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.

Transmission will not shift from first to second gear when starting off. you have to let off the gas and let it coast for a little while before you get back into the gas.

problem #1

(reported on)

Ram 1500

  • 245,000 miles

Left me stranded 15 miles away from town when GF left in second gear about 20 mph past shift point for 25 mins. Horrible, had to get a ride in an Intrepid all the way to town. Then paid 75 for the tow. Truck was babied its whole life. It has only towed up to 2x the listed max, drove at top speed for up to an hour on the highway, burnouts/break tourqes (till a tire went), dougnuts, over loaded, about 80k "hard" city cruising miles neutral drops, and of course a female driver, NEVER BUY A DODGE AGAIN.
