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.

2003 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 052011

Ram 1500 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,020 miles


I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 and it just turned over 100,00 miles. Aside from ALL the other rust on this vehicle my rims are rusted so bad that the rust will flake off in pieces as big as 2-3 inches long. I have had the wheels rebalanced several times and they will NOT stay balanced.

This is a real problem for me because if I go faster than 55-60 mph it will almost shake me out of the road. These rims are rusted so bad that I am almost positive that they will start leaking air at any time. This truck has never been off road or in the mud. I think that Dodge should recall any and all of these trucks with any rust issues. No vehicle only 10 year old should have any rust problems.
