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.

Water leaks through the rear window seals. Spoke to many Dodge Ram owners and they have had this issue. Dodge have been repairing the seals for free if your vehicle is under warranty but charging $174 if your warranty have expired. When I brought my vehicle in to get the leak fixed the service personnel told me that this is an on going issue with these trucks and there was four more trucks in that day for this issue. [xxx] was the service person at landmark Dodge in morrow Georgia. Dodge corporation is not willing to refund my money or help me. Landmark Dodge service#678-251-2270.

Small rocks are getting lodged between bedside and wheel tub causing outward protrusions on the right bedside. According to dealer there are isolated cases of this happening however this issue is also occurring on my other 2011 Ram 1500 as well. Being as these vehicles travel gravel roads daily it would seem there would be a greater chance of this occurring on my vehicles then most sold that never leave pavement. There is obviously a defect in the design of this vehicle as it is happening to both of my trucks and should be looked into. I could understand this being an isolated thing if it wasn't occurring on both vehicles.

Right knee bumps the large key turning it, and shutting off the engine, making it hard to control. This has happened several times usually while cornering or slowing for a corner.

  • 1,024 miles
When driving vehicle at any speed from 25 miles and above with rear quad cab door windows down - any height - vehicles shakes violently, noise in cab makes it impossible to talk. Have done this with single window down, rear window both opened and closed and vehicle still shakes making vehicle hard to drive. Have not tried this at highway speeds as I imagine the vehicle would be uncontrollable.

  • 2,300 miles
The contact owns a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 quad. While driving above 50 mph, the contact noticed that when he would roll the rear windows down, the vehicle would shake excessively almost causing the contact to lose control of the vehicle. The dealer was aware of the issue, informed the contact that there were no related recalls and offered no additional assistance. The contact did not inform the manufacturer nor was the vehicle repaired. The current and failure mileages were approximately 2,300. Bw updated 01/18/11 updated 03/15/11
