Ram 2500

  • 80,000 miles


All Dodge Ram from 2000-2005 have dash problems. They break and fall apart. They cost around $1500-1800 to get them replaced. They don't tell you when you buy it. So why does the NHTSA not do anything about it. If you have wreck and the airbags deploy, there are sharp edges in between you and the bags. They will cut your face, arms, or worse kill you. Is it going to take innocent people getting murdered by Dodge's negligence for somebody to do something. They are defective. Make Dodge recall the dash and install a new safer one. I do not want people to be killed, including myself and family.
