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.

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012012

Ram 1500 SLT 5.2L V8

  • Manual transmission
  • 220,000 miles


When I drive my 96 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 pickup on highway at miles between 60 and 70 it starts shaking and I am not able to control the steering wheel, I sometimes have to stop or speed up to over 75 miles for it to decrease. Also when i cross a small bump in the road it does the same thing. One mechanic told me the stabilizer bar needed to be replaced $400.00 did not fix the problem. I have taken to three different mechanics and they are not able to find the exact problem, can anyone out there tell me if they have had the same issue and is there a solution, I do not want to keep wasting money. Thank you.
