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

Feb 042012

Ram 1500 Laramie Slt 6.O

  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,000 miles


Rear spring mounts are actually rusting apart. Not just the surface, but splitting and flaking apart, like the cheap steel stuff we get from China. Definitely not the right kind of steel for this service. Will have to replace soon as is a safety hazard. If it fractures, the truck could lose control. I have never seen this problem before on a vehicle.

Ram 1500 Maxium 5.2lV8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,350 miles

What really bothers me is why this coil spring would break. I'am 65 years old, I do not go off roading. I have replace the ball joints twice. I know longer feel Dodge is making quality vehicles. What happened to taking pride in to your products. Will be having this part tested for metal defects. The auto industry doesn't any help in being bailout if they can't produce quality products.
