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 8-cyl

  • 68,000 miles


My 2009 Dodge Ram windshield became real foggy while I was driving at a speed of 56mph and when I attempted to turn on the defrost/defogger nothing happen. So I applied the brakes and move to the shoulder of the road safely that time thanks the almighty. This could be deadly and I am glad I was driving andnotone of the children nor my wife. Please recall all 2009 Dodge Ram pickups and replace the manual climate valve motor and sensors if needed, I beg Dodge to make our vehicles safer. Thank you!!!

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
The doors that switch the air up to the windshield or to your feet or face started flapping back anfourth and then stuck ion blowing on your feet never switching again. Then before I could get back to the dealership to get fixed the whole HVAC system quit working all except the fan switch, it still blows on your feet. When the system quit it also stopped my automatic headlight on switch to quit. You can't defrost the windshield how is that not safe. The truck had about 50000 miles when these started happen.
