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.

While driving my 2010 Dodge power wagon ( cc, 5.7 liter engine with no modification) at highway speeds I hit a small bump and the front end began to "shimmy", really bounce out of control for a moment or two. I slowed down, gripped the steering wheel and it eventually settled down. This "shimmy" isn't consistent as it does not always happen, even over the same bump on the road. Help.

I can not understand why it is taking so long to get this recall fixed on my truck. I have been calling every since they mailed it to me. I am always told so sorry we are still trying to get the parts shipped out to the dealers. Oh we do not know what is taking so long, oh yes we will call you when the parts are ready. Well this recall has been going on for quite some time now and I do not understand why they are so far behind. It says my rear axil can freeze up and cause a major if this is true then why do they not have the parts after this long? there has been no problem with the truck yet but then I do not drive it very far since it may lock up the rear end and cause me or my family to be hurt...along with someone else in their car!!!! I call my local dealer and I get the same crap for an answer.....

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 31,185 miles
While I was driving on a highway, I heard a terrible sound out of the rear of my Ram truck. I tried to stop my vehicle as soon as I could while the sound kept on getting even more terrible. When I stopped and looked at the bottom of the vehicle, the driveshaft fell off from the rear of the vehicle and oil spilled on road. There was no warning or no engine light signal in the vehicle electronics before or after this happened. Has the vehicle been on a freeway with a speedlimit of 100 km/hr or so, I think it would have been really tough to control the vehicle in this break-down and it could have resulted in a fatal accident. The vehicle was not in a position to be driven further and I had to get it towed to a nearest Chrysler dealership in coquitlam, british columbia, Canada. It has been days now and I have not yet heard back from Chrysler dealership that what is the cause of this problem and what will be done to fix this issue. On checking with dealership, they say that they have no solution to this problem till now. Luckily, my vehicle is still inside the warranty period and so the dealership says that the cost to repair will be covered, but they have no fixed timeline on how soon they can fix it. I tried reaching out to Chrysler and filed a complaint about this, but the response from Chrysler is not very helpful and they are not at all worried about my sufferings and loss that I am currently facing due to this vehicle not being available/ready for my use yet.
