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

  • 4,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 laramie. Upon purchasing the vehicle in 2008, the contact was informed that the vehicle would be compatible with a cab. He had a cab installed on the vehicle; however, the tailgate locking mechanism would not operate with the extended cab attachment. The dealer stated that the extended cab was not compatible with the vehicle and would try installing another one. The dealer later stated that they did not have the authority to install a second cab. The failure and current mileages were less than 4,000.
