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. Notes: The 2002 has the well-known and documented problem with their dashboards falling to pieces, but it also has engine failure from oil sludge. That's a doube shot of awful in your morning coffee.

Ram 1500 5.9L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


I guess i could consider being lucky, not getting a flat for 5 years... However on a rainy night i experienced first hand that the factory supplied jack will not lift the vehicle high enough t lift to secure a 20" tire with air. it raised the vehicle high enough to get the flat off.... I had to call a tow truck after trying for 2 hours. next day the service adviser told me never heard of it, carry a block of wood in the back.... Dealership management said call corporate, they said handle locally. one great thing about dodge is that they have perfected the runaround.

needless to say lack of empathy or interest in remedying the situation cost Dodge future business.
