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.

2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Owner Comments

Ram 1500

Mechanisims that hold all four doors open in the half and full position on my 2010 Dodge Ram crew cab truck do not hold door secure enough to prevent accidental unwanted closing of door which in turn strikes person while entering/exiting vehicle. While serious injury has not occurred yet, it's only a matter of time before it does. I am especially concerned for hand, finger, or head type injuries with children and even adults not aware of this condition when entering or exiting my vehicle. Even though I am very aware of this situation I could also get hit by a door unexpectedly. My dealer feels, and I agree, problem does not appear to be result of defective manufacturing or improper installation but rather improperly designed parts. Replacement of affected parts in like kind would only result in same problem. Re-designed parts such as stronger compression spring and/or increased depth of scallops in holding bars are necessary to more firmly hold doors on their detent until occupant desires to close door with his or her hand.
