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.

Wife was driving done the rode at about 35 miles and the truck went dead, no power steering or brakes. Pulled it over and it started right up. Brought in to Dodge dealership and the replaced something in the computer and said it was fixed. I was driving it on the highway the next day and it died on me crossing the highway, semi truck almost killed me, put it in park and it started right up. Took it to the dealership and they said it was the spark plugs, dished out 225 dollars for that, said its fixed again. Did it again to my wife the next day with my kids in the vehicle. Brought it back in Dodge had it for two weeks, know there telling me its the fuse box module at 1400 dollars. Don't know what to do, talking to dealership manager about wife not feeling safe in the vehicle, she said electrical work is hard to find out what's wrong with it. Don't know what to do know, you spend 30,000 plus on a vehicle you would thing they Dodge or Chrysler would back there vehicles before someone gets killed with this truck.

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 24,000 miles
I pulled onto a major highway after stopping at a yield sign. The truck reached about 35 mph and suddenly it felt like something was holding the back of the truck and wouldn't let it go any faster. I pushed down on the accelerator but the truck wouldn't go any faster. I took my foot off the accelerator and stepped on the brake and almost came to a complete stop. When I stepped on the accelerator again the truck seemed to be normal.
