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 #2

Ram 1500 Laramie 5.9L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 119,000 miles


The front end just fell apart. In the shop more than I have driven it. Will never buy another Dodge product. I had to replace the track bar, pittman arms, lower tie rod end, etc.

first time this happened was when the truck was about 1 year old and it has continued not often but maybe once or twice a year ever since i have taken it to local mechanics but no one can give me an answer on why this is happening just wanted to know if anyone has had this problem and what solution they may have used to correct this problem.
