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.

2002 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 162007

Ram 2500 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,275 miles


During a routine stop at red light on 55 mph road the metal brake line ruptured where it is routed along the frame between the gas tank and frame. Rusted through, no way to inspect. Dealer reported this was a common failure on Dodge pick-ups. During this stop the pedal went to the floor, able to pump and get a little front brake, and the ABS and brake lights came on in the dash assembly. I crimped the line added brake fluid and limped to local dealer for replacement. Dealer knows about problem so Dodge has to know and should change material or routing of brake line. George the consumer provided a repair invoice. Updated 09/05/07
