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.

problem #3

Nov 212007

Ram 1500 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,909 miles


It started with our van having a overhaul and the service man telling us we need this work done to it and over a year taking the van in and saying we can not find anything bring in when it stalls right away and we will check. I would go pass the dodge service shop, looks like our van was never moved andthe mileage stayed the same. Weeks at a time we would bring in our van and rent a car same thing cann't find the problem. Finally I had enough of that and wetook our van to someone else not Dodge in 12-08 year later found the problem, by then we had to replace computer and sensors with many rentals. We still have problems because of the delay on the first problem Never again will we buy a Dodge any Dodge.
