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 #2

Aug 022004

Ram 2500

  • 75,000 miles


The dashboard in this vehicle has been cracked and broken since 2004. It continues to break and chip causing pieces of sharp plastic to fall inside the inner dash area. When driving at night and attempting to change from low beam, to high beam, the lights will go out and will not be operational. You have to continuously flip the high beam switch multiple times to get the lights to come back on. This did not start until the dash cracked and plastic pieces fell inside the dash. Both of these issues continue to this date.
