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 8-cyl

Traveling fl turnpike in palm beach county. Typical week-long heavy rain in may with standing water. Dodge Ram 1500 with Goodyear Wrangler hp 275/60R20" tires. I was driving approx 45 mph due to rain and standing water in a 65 mph zone of the middle lane when the tires lost traction and I hydroplaned. The truck began to fishtail. Being a professional driver of a fire truck I used proper corrective techniques to compensate and avoid rollover and avoided other vehicles. I crashed into the right safety guard rail. Crash caused damage to front bumper and both front/rear 1/4 panels. Afterwards I looked up the reviews of this tire and found multiple complaints of inadequate traction during wet conditions and similar experiences.

The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab lwb. While driving 50 mph or greater, the vehicle vibrates roughly. The dealer and manufacturer were notified and stated that the failure stems from the vehicle's tires. The tire manufacturer rebalanced the tires, but the failure persisted.

I just bought a new 2005 Dodge magnum 1500 Ram long bed from the dealer in November 2005. After the second day of driving on the highway I noticed the truck vibrated a lot at around 65 mph. I returned the truck to get the tires balanced at the dealer and they said that tires needed no balancing and the shaking was fixed. The next day going to work the shaking started at around 63 mph and I returned to the dealer and test drove with mechanic and they balanced the tires. This time one tire was found unbalanced and was told that these truck shake at those speeds and when there is less than 300 pounds on the bed. I made another appointment so that they could do more tests and test drive. Same thing was said. They said everything was normal and nothing could be done and that I need to put 300 plus pounds on the bed to fix the problem. I called the 1-800 customer service for the manufacturer and they called the dealer and told me to go and make another appointment. I went to the dealer the next business day and the service department said that there was no need for any further appointment and there was nothing to be done as those long beds and model shake that way with less than 300 pound on the bed. I could not get another appointment or go on a test drive. At this point I think that is a safety issue because if you were to go on a long trip, and most highways and interstate have speeds of 60 and above, you would not be able to look through the mirrors to merge into lanes or see other cars if the truck is shaking. If you are driving to work and the passenger puts a drink in the cup holder, and you are on the highway, and if the drink spills because of the shaking would that cause a shortage and /or distraction. It would be a safety issue to have to load and unload the 300 plus pounds of whatever from the bed when you have to load plywood or anything that require the dimension of the bed.
