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 #1

Jan 142013

Ram 1500 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,000 miles


The truck has been relatively trouble free until now. I replaced both front wheel bearings a while ago, the dash has been cracked and falling apart long ago, recently I replaced the heater core because it was leaking. Who designed this piece of crap? You have to pull out the whole dash and it falls apart in your hands. Now the heater won't shut off. It blows really hot air continuously. The AC compressor still works and the lines get cold, but the heater is so strong, nothing gets through to the vents but hot air and the temp control dial has no effect. I think my next step is to see about getting it fixed or put a valve in the heater water line to shut off the water to the heater so the AC works when it gets close to summer.
