I have received many notices about the air bag failure on my 04 Ram truck. I have taken it to my dealer over a year ago and they cannot acquire the parts to replace it, this is ongoing and dumb. Every time I drive it I am at risk and if something ever happened to me my family would sue Dodge Corp. But I wish to live with peace of mind. Also codes R25 P81 P40 at which the whell hubs are failing every 3-4 years and I keep purchasing with replacement parts from local auto parts stores.
