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.

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 062008

Ram 1500 Laramie V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,000 miles


We bought the (used) sharp looking truck mostly for the larger back seat for extra passengers and should have wondered at the much lower price than other pick ups of similar capacity. We have had numerous problems - cracked dash (in pieces inside the dash), heater blows very cold air, (had it fixed, heat lasted three weeks), just had another heater/coolant incident this morning that has the truck towed for the third time in the year we've owned it. Are looking at other brands for our next truck - don't feel like the Dodge name carries much quality as the vehicle ages. My advice if looking into a purchase of a 1500 Ram? Go FORD.
