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.

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 051999

Ram 1500 Plain 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


I had carried the truck to the dealer for an oil change. The shop foreman showed me the broken bolt. Asked to get it replace he said it would not be a problem and not to worry about. I had purchased the 70,000 warranty. It should have been fixed but he wouldn't fix it. I thought about writing the head of Chrysler but knew it would not do any good. To this day the bolt has not been replace. I still own this truck but only use it about once a week to move a lawn mower. Because of the dealer's non action on minor problems has lead me to never buy another Chrysler product. All problems were only minor but cost Chrysler 8 - 10 sales which I would have purchased if he had only fixed the problems.
