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.

Ram 2500 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission

THANKS DODGE !!! I was told by my mechanic a few months ago that he found a leak in the evaporator core and it would cost $600 to fix. The bigger problem was that he was going to have to remove the dash to get to it. UNFORTUNATELY, the dash was cracking and in so many pieces they would not be able to to put it back on. So now I was stuck paying for a dashboard (another $400). The truck is 8 years old but only 55,000 miles and sits most of the time. I did pay to get the A/C and dash fixed but I made sure NOT TO BUY DODGE REPLACEMENT PARTS. I bought an aftermarket dash with a LIFETIME WARRANTY, aftermarket A/C core and while the dash was apart I paid the extra $75 for them to replace the heater core figuring it was a matter of time before that went.
