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.

I bought the truck 10/29/10 with 22 K miles on it and have 29950K now. I have had to replace the whole front end, rack and pinion steering system tie rod ends, leaky back window, third brake light, balance and rotate tires 3 times, rail dust, new carpet, leaky third light, new rotors and brakes at 24K, air cleaner, wipers. I questioned the front end when I bought it and was told it as just tires out of balance. When I picked it up and asked if the front end looked good because I noticed the front tie rod ends had a lot of play and I was concerned with issues due to that. I was told the front end was fine no problems with it. I later took it back and had all the front steering components replaced. I picked up the vehicle and had no alignment and was told they only set the toe. I had to keep the steering wheel a full half turn to the left to go straight. I paid for an alignment and the printout showed my toe was set under the specifications. I have tired unevenly worn due to bad front end components. I had to have the front head lamp replaced due to cracking inside the lens, a back seat that the latch did not work properly. After picking up the vehicle bolts that needed tightening due to carpet being replaced. I question how this vehicle was properly inspected and none of these things were noticed. I drive my daughter daily in this vehicle and it remains to have front end problems. I have done research and noticed a lot of issues with crashes relating to faulty front ends on these vehicles. It continues to remain unsafe.

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,406 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Ram quad cab, with Goodyear Wrangler hp 275/60R20 tires. While driving 70 mph the driver side rear tire blew-out, which caused him to swerve to the shoulder of the road. He could not change the tire because the jack nor the wheel nut that's standard, did not come with the vehicle. The failure mileage was 10,406. Updated 12/01/09 updated 12/29/09 the consumer stated the tire that blew out had dry rot. The consumer realized the only way the spare tire can be released from the cable is from underneath the truck after jacking it up on the frame, pushing the spare tire up to the frame and releasing the cable from the rim. The consumer also stated there was not enough spare tire cable length. Updated 12/31/09. Additional information from consumer. Updated 01/21/10.

Goodyear Wrangler hp P275/60R20 sidewall splits I've had to buy 3 tires at different times due to this tire failure all 3 tires have splits in sidewall. Very exspensive to replace due to this cause. Just wanted to see if there could be a reason for this failure and if it could be investigated. I'm stuck without a spare tire due to exspense..last sidewall split occurred on July 30th, 2009.

I was driving on a straight, asphalt paved road when the right rear tire suddenly failed. There was no prior indication of any problems with the tire. I had the car in to the dealer about 7 days before and their checklist shows the tires and inflation were ok. My speed at the time was about 40mph. I have a photo of the tire. The tire failed completely on both sides of the tire where the sidewall meets the tread.

I purchased a Dodge Ram 1500 quad cab hemi 2007. It came with Goodyear Wrangler hp P275/60R20 tires. Since I purchased the vehicle I have had major issues with hydroplaning. Even in the lightest rain the rear end of the vehicle will fish tail at idle speeds. I currently have 25000 miles on the truck and it has been used to tow a total of 2000 of those miles. The tires tread have warn so bad that they are down to 6/32 of a tread life. The other issue with this tire was 3 small rocks went in between the tread and punctured the tire in three locations in the flat part of the tread to cause the tire to have a leak. The tire slow leaked air to 18 psi where the punctures would seal themselves from the vehicle weight. Small rocks should not of been able to puncture the tire being an on/off road aggressive tire. This tire also should not have only 6/32 of a tread life after 25000 miles of highway miles over 12 months. I contacted Goodyear and took the tires to a Goodyear dealer to get checked and when I called Goodyear they told me the rock issue is a roadway hazard, but I was charged for the repair. For the hydroplane and tread wear, they told me there was nothing they could do. The dealer I went too, told me in his opinion those tires are not aggressive enough or heavy enough for that model truck, and he does not understand why Goodyear is placing them stock on that vehicle. That is the cause for the hydroplaning. I have almost had 2 accidents in the past 2 weeks during light showers due to sliding rear end. The vehicle hydroplanes during any rainy conditions, no matter how light or how severe. This caused him to have to drive his vehicle in 4 wheel drive, during these types of weather conditions. Also the jack of the vehicle does not fit his tires. His vehicle came equipped with 20'' rims and the jack is made for 18''. he called the manufacturer and was told that they do not make jacks for 20 rims.
