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 #2

Jun 012004

Ram 1500 1500 Laramie 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles


This problem is a pain not so much because it affects driveabilty but because it makes a mess wherever you park the truck, namely the garage floor, peoples driveway. It doesn't leak much just about a half dollar sized spot each time you shut it off. I didn't have it fixed because dealer said that we should wait until we have transmission problem then would be easier to fix. So great, sounds as if that is something to be expected as well. Not ensuring much confidence at this point. But mostly says more about the dealer doesn't it they just didn't want to fix it. Which I don't get because It was under warranty and would have been paid by Chrysler corp.
