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 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,000 miles


The Blue front molding around grill fell off my truck, Took to a Dodge dealer,they told me it is only glued togather, and wanted to charge me $189.00 to glue it back on. This is just CRAZY. Makes me wonder what else is Glued on and going to fall off next . For 1 thing I spent over $31,000 for this truck. I did not expect the Truck to be GLUED together, My husband bought some glue made for PLASTIC for under $20.00 and had to wait until the weather was warm enough to glue it back on. I had to drive my Beautiful truck around for almost 5 months without the Grill molding on it looking like Crap. I will Never drive another Dodge truck again. I knew the mark up was high on fixing a truck but this is not what I will pay to GLUE something back together. I May be a Woman but I am not STUPID. The new word for this MOPAR !!! is NOPAR. Looking to buy a new Truck but wont be a Dodge. Any suggestions on a well built Real truck???
