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

Ram 1500 Laramie 5.9L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


Dodge transmission 's are not worth a damn sh*t !!! F*ck Dodge and everyone who works for them!! DODGE si the right name for those slimy bastards. Every time i went to the dealership to try to get my problem fixed they would repeatedly duck and DODGE me in the building !!! I wouldn't leave until they gave me an answer. Dashboard cracked as well.... they replaced it with a new one. Transmission cost $2000 in an independent shop. Brake failure, they replaced proportion valve at no charge. Just recently had dash vent break off and they wanted twenty bucks for the damn thing and i told that lazy bastard behind the counter.."Thats why Dodge is in the shape they are in!" they break a foot off in your ass for everything!! The big 3 (Chrysler, Ford, and Chevy) need to get real real with the customer on the prices of their parts!!
