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.

Ram 1500 V8

  • Automatic transmission

I was driving down the street at 40 mph, hit a slight dip in the road and completely lost control!! The wheel was shaking from side to side violently. I see things flying around me and the next thing I know I had come to a stop, having hit a fence. I took out three mail boxes. The residents thereof were sitting out in their yards and it's a miracle they were not hurt or killed. They managed to get out of the ways just in time. I can't help but to think if I had been going any faster, or if my 16 year old daughter had been driving what could have happened. They call it the "death wobble". Needless to say that leaves such a cold feeling in the pit of my stomach.

I took my truck in to have the tires rotated, and found out my outer tie rods needs replacing, plus my rack and pinion, for a grand total of 1K in repairs!

Ram 1500 LX 4.7L Mag

  • Automatic transmission

This vehicle is quite simply the worst piece of crap I have every owned. Nothing but problem after problem. Just a couple of months ago I replaced the whole steering rack. Now today the tie rod just suddenly failed. I mean complete. Thank god I was going slow or it would have been a disaster.

Did I mention, piece of sh*t.
