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.

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • 53,000 miles


A few months ago my truck started to make noise that sounded like metal rubbing. I got it to the shop and they say it's the front left bearing and hub. I only have 53,000 miles and an extended warranty. However, the warranty will only cover the front bearing on a front wheel drive vehicle. My truck is rear wheel drive but the front bearings are not covered? why not, don't you need all of them to drive the thing. So it's now going to cost me $300+ to fix the left bearing. Any they say the right one will need to be replaced soon also. What a waste, on both the truck and the warranty. This is the 3rd time it's been in the shop in 3 years. They have previously replaced the power steering component and the brake cylinders.
