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.

Ram 1500 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,000 miles

I was driving home made a left turn and my left front wheel came off attached to the axle. Some how I went between the two trees and not into them. I could have been seriously injured if not killed. I do have pictures. This apparently is a problem with the Dodge Ram and why its not a recall I don't understand. I was doing maybe 15 miles per hr. Good thing I wasn't on the main highway which I just came off of. I bought the vehicle used but only had the truck 4 months.

Freaking dealership didn't even fix it all and my truck makes a noise like its hung up in 4wheel drive. However, the "mechanic" at the dealership said he couldn't hear anything. BS!

I was really happy when I bought this truck but now I don't even trust it, The company had nothing to offer me as far as fixing it. ALL out of pocket. I'm pissed!

I was driving my truck and broke the studs off the front passenger side wheel. I went to have this problem fixed by buying the studs, which I did at Advanced Auto Parts. Only thing is, the studs don't fit the lugs. Dodge probably doesn't even know they have the wrong size of studs floating around out there. Now I'm having to go to a dealership and buy the entire hub assembly because I can't just buy the studs to fit my lugs. A one day job has left my truck broke down for 3 weeks because I can't drive it to get it fixed I can't put a freaking wheel on it, I've got to have it towed or buy the assembly and fix it myself. What should have been a day $50 job has turned into a month $300 job not to mention the favors I owe to people for all the rides I've been getting while my truck is down.

The wheel bearings failed so it cost $480 to buy new ones. Just one more problem in a long line of issues with this damn Dodge truck.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 4x4 it has about 56000 miles on it and the front wheel bearings are wasted as much as I love mopar this will make me think twice about buying another truck from dodge.
