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 #2

Jan 022009

Ram 1500 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


The truck is rusting on each door and below. There is significant rust along the bottom of the panels all around. There is a bias with the worst rust on the passenger side. The only portion I had fixed was the hood. The body shop opted to replace and paint. It was cheaper than repairing all the rust.

problem #1

Feb 032007

(reported on)

Ram 1500 LX 5.2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

The passenger side speaker shorts out. I'm the third owner and I have records were the speaker had been replaced before. It was replaced by the first owner at around 38,000 miles. It seems the solution to the problem is not in the speakers , because a Dodge dealership is the ones who replaced the speaker the first time. I also have a problem were when my truck is under load I hear a knocking noise, I've tried all kinds of things to get rid of this problem nothing seems to work. I'm a first time Dodge and this will be the last time I will buy another Dodge !!!!!
