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.

Ram 1500 6-cyl

  • 155,189 miles
Called to set an appointment to have the P80 / nhtsa14V-795 recall repaired done on my 2006 Dodge Ram 1500. Set to drop off my vehicle at 8:30 am on 4/1/2015 at chris nikel Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep (2920 N aspen ave broken arrow, ok 74012 918-355-5000). I left my truck with them and I called back this afternoon to check the status on it. They stated that they would need it for another 3 days to complete the work. I had an appointment with a 1 day promise and now its a 3-4 day job. Classic way of getting out from doing the job. I am a single father that cannot go 4 days without my truck. Very unprofessional and deceptive business practices. Me and my kids safety remains at risk because the recalls don't produce enough revenue for the dealership to remain a priority.

I received the recall notice in the beginning of January. I notified the dealer (arrigo Dodge of West palm beach, fl) and was advised that they were waiting for parts. It is now 2 months later and I am still waiting. What is the normal time for recall repairs. I feel that I am driving an unsafe vehicle. Please advise as to what recourse is available.
