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

Feb 132006

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


Transmission in my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab pick-up truck with only 3656 miles on it is making a whining sound when it is warmed up, the vehicle was brought back to the dealership where it was purchased and looked at by one of the service technicians, the technician stated that the transmission would need a torque converter and a front pump. The manufacturer of the vehicle was contacted and the parts which were requested by the dealership under warranty were denied by the manufacturer, so at this time I was told by the service director that I would have to live with it and was sent home with the transmission still whining as it was when I brought it in, this condition to me is completely unacceptable and it is unsafe.
