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

Jan 012003

Ram 2500 6-cyl, Turbo Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


Not long after I bought it used, got a "bump steer" going and had to have the ball joints replaced. Dealer was incompetent (scheduled on day when the "front end guy" wasn't there), then limited allowed time on rental car, plus dealer trying to charge extra for alignment (that should be part of repair) made this a real hassle to deal with.

Ram 2500 Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 73,000 miles

I had to replace the ball joints at 73000. Bad design. They should have lasted longer. Certified mec changed them for me at a cost of 500. Hope these last longer.
