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.

The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500. While traveling 40 mph on rough terrain the contact traveled over a bump and noticed that the vehicle had suddenly shut off. The vehicle was taken to the dealership where the computer was updated; however, the failure continued to occur. There were no prior warnings. The failure mileage was 26000 and the current mileage was 27000.

Ram 1500

  • 57,600 miles
I bought a 2008 Dodge 1500 St quad cab pickup truck new in November of 2008. In February of 2010 cranked my truck one morning an the truck made a loud tapping noise on the passenger, then stopped. I contacted the Dodge dealership and explained what happened. Because it was out of warranty I had to make arrangement for a loaner. I brought the truck in on 07/19/2008 at 10:00 a.M. and they called me and said they completed the work which included removing the cam shaft and installing a new one and the rack lifters on the passenger side. The truck has 57,000 miles and oil is changed every 4,200 miles. There was no explanation to why this happen but I am very disappointed and truly dissatisfied with the run around I received. My driver door is another problem which occur two weeks after I received the truck. They adjusted the doors 4 times and now they are saying because of the mileage that is out of warranty I would have to file a compliant like I did with the lifters to Dodge Corp for approval. I will never by another Dodge after this.
