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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,000 miles
My 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 truck has 26,000 miles on it. We have been told by a mechanic's shop that the front hub bearings are in dire need of being replaced. I see that 2006 models have been recalled by Dodge for the same problem. I do not think that 26,000 miles warrants something of this nature failing and it seems apparent that this is a manufacturer's defect.
