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.

2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Ram 2500

  • 120,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Dodge 2500. The contact stated that the wiring harness failed and was repaired under warranty. On a separate occasion, the defroster and windshield wipers failed. While utilizing the driver's side turn signal, the passenger side turn signal would illuminate instead. This failure was also repaired under warranty. In addition, the contact was experiencing very hard vibrations form the front end of the vehicle. He struck a squirrel in the road and nearly lost control of the vehicle due to the vibrations. A local service dealer replaced the steering linkages in the vehicle at the contact's expense. He later received a recall notice for the suspension and excessive vibrations (steering linkages). The NHTSA campaign id number was unknown. The current and failure mileages were less than 120,000.

My automobile is unsafe, I almost wrecked Thursday with my children with me. It very scary and I am afraid to drive it any more. We have been through arbitration twice and been denied. We have two dealerships that have driven it and says it is unsafe and needs to be removed from the highways. I have contacted daimler Chrysler and they have refused to cooperate with us. Please call me at 479-394-0058 or 614-886-5716
