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 8-cyl

  • 96,000 miles
I received a recall notice from dick poe Dodge. I made an appointment and when I got there they said they don't have the parts because Dodge only send 2 or 3 of the parts. They told me to keep calling. So I called the 1-800 number to Dodge and they told me to call dick poe to get on a waiting list. I called dick poe and they said they don't do the waiting list because of what Dodge did to them last time. They didn't receive enough parts for the people on the list. So here am driving around in an unsafe truck and I can't get help from the factory or the dealer. I don't know if this is place to file a complaint where accident hasn't happened, but I need help.
