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.

Ram 1500 SLT V8

At first it started with a single crack in the middle of the dashboard. Now, it is disentigrating - cracks everywhere and chunks completely seperated from the dash. I bought the truck brand new. It now has 55,000 miles on it and looks worse than a 20 year old Datsun I used to drive. The brand should own up to this manufacturing defect.

Dodge knows that they're selling a product with a problem, and they leave the consumer hanging. This is the second dash since I bought the truck brand new. I paid cash, and bought the extended warranty, but it doesn't cover things like this. Don't get sucked into buying something that promises that they'll fix it, they don't!

Ram 1500 Club Cab

  • 120,000 miles

I bought the truck used in 2002 and it was in excellent condition. Still runs great, just the minor 4wd problems that come with use. The dashboard started cracking two years ago and is not faring well in the Georgia sun. It is a real distraction because of the reflections the cracks cast on the windshield when driving.

Ram 1500 LX

  • 145,000 miles

This truck has had the general "here and their" stuff expected, but in all it has been a very dependable truck. This truck has been in the Florida sun for essentially all of it's existance, but I have had previous older trucks with 3 times the age compared to this one, with significantly less cracking in the dash than this dodge. I have 3 major cracks now running forward to aft, and I have been using a windshield sunshade quite regularly. I hope dodge does perform a recall on this problem. It is quite excessive for this young a truck.
