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 #2

Dec 102008

Ram 1500 Laramie 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,904 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Front differential seal blew on highway dropped most of the fluid and screwed the differential. Took to dealer and they confirmed diff done must replace. Truck has 7yr 115000 km warranty. Dealer says covered and ordered new front diff. Next day phone call front diff in but Chrysler Canada got involved and put on hold. Want receipts for diff service. The dealership cant even tell me if i am schedule A or schedule B!

Sh*tty Chrysler product. They are attempting to get out of paying for warranty repair!!

Will never buy anything Chrysler ever again and if you are smart you wont either!!!

Ram 1500 1500 Slt 4x4 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,083 miles

Driving down the highway, the seal blew and emptied my front diff. After a few miles I could smell diff fluid getting hot. I attempted to pull over to the side of the road. Before i came to a complete stop, there was flames shooting out both sides of truck. the bottom of the truck was engulfed in flames. it took 4 weeks to get the truck back from the dealer. They never cleaned any oil or smoke damage. or the smell from the cab. I REALLY HATE THIS TRUCK AND WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER DODGE.
