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.

1999 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 182008

Ram 2500 Cummins

  • Manual transmission
  • 100,000 miles


My 5 year old son and I were almost killed today because of this defect. I was driving about 20-25 mph and the steering seemed to be jerky or slack, the next instant the truck veered hard left into 2 lanes of oncoming traffic and luckily I did not hit anyone. Apparently, my mechanic tells me this is a common problem with sealed wheel bearings - the seal goes bad, the bearings go dry, then they lock up - usually the wheel falls off and a bad accident ensues. I'm just fortunate to have not been driving 65 mph down the highway or I'm sure I would have killed someone if not my son and I. The biggest problem with the Dodge Cummins is that you can not hear some of these problems until it is too late due to the diesel noise. I would highly recommend that anyone with sealed wheeled bearings get them replaced prior to 75,000 miles - it could save your life.
