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.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 212005

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,753 miles


05/Dodge truck Ram 1500/quad 140wb 4X2 transmission shifts all the time in over drive. It doesn't shift in tow/ haul like that. After four times in shop they say this normal to do this. 1,400 miles later the rear axle pinion seal was leaking. Seal#52070340-ab. They just change the seal and add lubricant#4874469. In passing a car it will run up too 5800 rpms, then go to 2500 rpms then 1800 rpms.
