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.

2006 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

May 092007

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,096 miles


I own a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 regular cab TR4 4X4 V with a 4.7L engine. The problem dealt with routine failure of the front shocks. The front shocks installed on these Dodge failed routinely, they leaked oil, and became worthless. This was the second failure on the pickup. The first failure occurred with less than 3000 miles on the truck, and now again with 15,000 miles on the truck. I contacted a dealer, and they stated that this was a known manufacture defect with these shocks, and they were on back order. Also, I verified this information with other owners online, at The trucks were being driven daily, bouncing around on the road unsafely, and no timely solution has been delivered by Dodge. This was unacceptable!
