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

Aug 162012

Ram 1500 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


All the problems I had with the ram , seems EVERYONE HAD THE SAME ISSUES" and they are posted. The dash cracked, two rear differentials now had to replace the old one, once at 86,000 miles, rebuild by a place that was cheap yea I see now they skimmed quality corners). At least not the new rear punkin now has a Posi rear end completely rebuilt. So, besides the cracked top dash board,the drivers sear naturally tore on the side, Also had to replace out the blower fan, resistor speed controller module,and heater core so while doing that also did the air conditioner core. These things do not happen to Toyota's. Now the abs failed, had to replace out the battery ( well it's is the original) Breaks done twice.and of course the water pump(some time ago) I'm sure I am for getting some things... but the American truck (and auto) makers do not know how to engineer. Never did, never will.

So I never got the bolts and I guess my truck was dog tracking and it cracked my

new transmission. I am ready to push this truck off a cliff and I love dodge trucks.
