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 VAN 5.2L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 84,500 miles

Driving on a busy Houston Highway and boom the truck shuts-off. I lost all power had no chance to get out of traffic. Have the truck towed to a local Dodge dealer. The dealer tells me to leave the truck and they would take care of it. The dealer calls the next day and tells me it's the PCM computer. I said OK lets get it fixed ASAP. Well ASAP did not mean anything. The truck was at the dealer for 3 days. I get a call from the dealer and he tells me the part for my Van is no longer available. (WHAT?) It's a 2003 Van that I use for work. (Now Im screwed!) So I call around and another Non Dodge repair center said they could install a rebuilt PCM. So I pay for another tow to this guy. OK for 1300.00 bucks I got my truck back. So after a week with no work truck I decided I would never buy a dodge product again.
