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.

Started hearing a roaring noise from front end of truck, vibration in steering wheel and jerking when making right turns. Replaced hub bearing assy and noise quit. Dodge recalled the 2006 model but not the 2005 which uses the same part. Called Dodge and all they told me was there was not recall on that vehicle. I said I know, that is the problem. Fixed at my own expense...feel part was defective.

problem #1

The front passenger wheel broke off at low speed. Seems that the lower control arm (axle) just snapped in two. No other vehicles where involved, pot holes or curb. The wheel broke off pulling everything apart inside the wheel well except for the brake line. The truck landed on top of the wheel preventing it from flipping over. I spoke with Chrysler Dodge and all though admitting that the lower control arm should never break said that it wasn't a defected part because I hadn't had my vehicle serviced through the dealership. This was a very serious and dangerous problem. If it wouldn't have been for only doing 15mph when it happened it would have caused serious injury and possible death. Dodge has a known problem with faulty ball joints but don't seem to care all though this may have been a preliminary problem leading up to the axle breaking in two.
