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.

2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 312004

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles


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!
