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 Sport 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission

i bought this sport truck and the came with some nice tires very nice profile. When I went to replace them they stopped making them and if I wanted them I would have to pay $700 a tire. I could not afford it at that time so I put the standard tire from chrysler for these 20 inch rims. Well I've had vibration ever since. Id have change u bolts and rotated the tires and changed the weights and I still get a vibration when I get up to 57 .. what the f*ck is this and when I go 85 I get smoke from the rear.. what the f*ck .. I'm so pissed. I took care of her and I can't find anyone to fix it or know what the heck is going on. how can I fix this
