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.

problem #1

Ram 2500 LS V10

  • Automatic transmission

The metal on the door is super thin; the metal has split into two and has an open seam therefor, the latch doesn't engage to keep the door shut! So my husband being clever has used a cargo strap to ratchet the door shut and I have to scoot across from the PASSENGER SIDE in order to get to the driver's seat. I have bruises from landing on the seat belts multiple times. We tried JB Weld to mend the metal but that didn't work so my next adventure is taking it to our local Dodge dealership and seeing if they have any solutions and/or welding a piece of metal to the damned door and getting a new latch. In the meantime, it's a good thing I'm bendable to scoot across the seats. Worse comes to worse I'll be buying a used door that doesn't match the paint to fix the issue!
