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.

2007 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Jun 012010

Ram 1500 SLT 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles


After the dealer completed the 30,000 mile tune up, there was a shudder in the brake pedal whenever I applied them. I took it back and they turned one rotor which did not help the problem. Since they had rotated my tires, they put them back where they were, still no help. My thinking was they had not torqued them correctly. They re-torqued them, still no good. The problem is of course, once you torque them wrong, the rotor is warped. They said however, the rotors were ok. They must have done something wrong because there was no problem before. After reading comments from other Ram owners who have tried everything, and who have spent a lot of money, and have not found a solution, I don't know what to try. Dave

Update from Oct 7, 2010: I took my 2007 Ram back to the dealer. This time they checked the rear rotors and found the left rear warped .013. They trued it and the problem is fixed! They did not charge me because they couldn't be sure why it warped.

Ram 1500 1500 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission

So far this 2007 Dodge Ram sucks. First the shocks where bad and didn't get replaced under warranty until 3 weeks ago. They had not produced any shocks lately and so they had to put in a Ranchero system. Fine with me. Then the brakes occurred and i will have to change the back ones tomorrow. Last night i got into my truck after work at 1am, turned the key and nothing happened. Battery was fine, checked everything i could and suddenly car started!?!?!?! I had less problem with my 1994 Ram 1500 Laramie i had for 7 years than i have had so far with this 3 year old piece of ......... Thinking of selling that nice piece of art ASAP
