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.

The contact owns a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. The contact was driving approximately 10 mph and attempting a turn when a portion of the cup holder fractured and caused the contact's drink to fall to the floor while the contact was driving. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer to see if the cup holder piece could be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 64,000.

The turn signals, wipers, and high beams on my 04 Dodge Ram 1500 have been giving me issues for the last year. This started out as an intermittent problem and has gotten worse over time. At first it was just the turn signals. When I would signal left the right blinker would come on, or visa versa. Then sometimes it would work fine, and other times it would not come on at all. It's gotten worse over time and now I am at the point where only when I signal left will the right signal come on; nothing else works. My hazard switch at one time would work the left signal, and the left clicker would work the right signal but now that does not work either. At this point my hazard switch and left clicker now only work the right blinker and I have no way to work the left. As for the high beams, sometimes I am un-able to disengage them which is very dangerous for on-coming traffic. At this point I do not risk it and just don¿T use them, which can be dangerous to myself at some times. The wipers have a mind of their own. Sometimes when I have them on full speed/fast in heavy rain they will all of a sudden reduce to the lowest or middle setting. Sometimes they will just not turn on at all. I almost got into a major accident because of this and now just avoid driving in the rain if at all possible.

Warped rotors at 9,000 and the front end jumps all over the road making it very dangerous to steer, the dealer resurfaced rotors and then at 13,000 miles it is happening again. We have complain several times about this and got no wear. Now that our warranty is up I guess we get stuck replacing the rotors after paying $35,000 for our Dodge, we are looking for a smaller SUV also and will probably not buy another Dodge, Chrysler, product again. Never had this problem with our Tahoe @ over 60,000 miles.I think this is unfair to consumers! please help investagate this matter. P.S. I seen a adv.for Dodge 2500 and it said largest brakes in class that is a joke!
