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.

This is going in for the 5th time. Dealing with Chrysler Customer Service in the U.S. was fine. Had the problem repaired at no cost 4 times. Now the 5th time, and you get the reps overseas. Send a letter to Chrysler , stand your ground. It will be fixed for the 5th time, I won't pay a dime, and they can continue to fix this as long as I own it.

Ram 1500 SLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles

Truck running hot in stop and go traffic in early spring weather. A/C would not work. Had thermostat & A/C motor replaced. Everything OK until hot weather struck, then running hot to the point of overheating in hot weather in stop and go traffic. Had fan clutch replaced. Problem solved. Also noticed a "surging" sound in the engine when truck was idling. Fan clutch replacement also cured this disease.

Ram 1500 SLT

  • 40,000 miles

For an inexperienced person it could be dangerous, especially in the winter time. The heater blower just stops working, allowing the windshield to freeze up. The problem is in the steering column (switch /key tumbler).

THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL....... IT IS DANGEROUS IN WINTER FOR AN UNSUSPECTING PERSON.
