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.

I'm filing a complaint as to how some dealers are not taking the recall seriously that was issued for the Dodge Ram trucks. The dealership in particular was hayes Chrysler in duluth ga. The service representative ([xxx]) was rude and put the repair off for an additional month from today's date. If the recall is serious enough to be issued then the dealerships should make an effort to take care of the safety issue in a timely manner and at least show some professionalism, rather than showing the customer they don't want or care to complete the work.

What I can do for you today is escalate your case to the special tracking department and they will notify you when the part is available. Linda, customer assistance center. Reference number: 23976379 he tore of the bottom of the recall and threw it away. He said that he did not have the parts to conduct the recall. He said that I would receive another notice.

I noticed the vehicle making a humming/rubbing sound coming from the rear end when moving 20-35mph and coming to a stop. I parked the vehicle until I was able to get it to the dealership, so the technician could test drive and locate the problem. Upon his initial leaving he heard nothing so he proceeded to pick up the speed to 55mph to check for vibration in a neutral coast down. Upon reaching 45mph the drive-shaft completely snapped and separated from the rear end assembly, resulting in the rear end completely locking up and sending the truck spinning out of control and the drive shaft swinging violently underneath the truck until the truck came to rest in the middle of the road. Upon further inspection when the truck was towed back to the dealership the technician noticed the rack and pinion assembly completely unthreaded itself from the driveshaft resulting in a catastrophic failure of the rear end. As a result it completely destroyed the gears and components within the rear end housing including deep gashes into the housing itself rendering it unsafe to re-build on. The dealership has since ordered a whole new rear end assembly to be purchased and placed on the truck and currently waiting on parts as I write this letter.

As you're driving, regardless of where-when you come across a bump in the road, hole, speed bump, railroad tracks, etc.; the entire front end of the truck jumps. The steering wheel moves completely from your hands. This has caused several very close encounters while driving down the highway. The truck jumps and shimmies from side to side. This happens every time you drive, regardless of the speed. The car dealer said it was a result of leakage in the seals with the shocks. However, there is still a problem.
