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

  • 86,100 miles


My 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 is making a banging sound behind the glove box. I have had this issue before since it was an heat blend door actuator that went out. The dealership fixed it once and now its back again. Is this going to be an on going issue each year and the part needs to be replaced. I was quoted almost "$750" in just labor fees to get it changed out. I don't think this is an issue on my end since the part appears to last for a year. I will continue to monitor the A/C and check with other Dodge Ram forums on how others had this solved.
