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 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,800 miles
Vehicle is a 2003 Dodge 2500, serial #X3G-790016 and it jumps from park into reverse. Vehicle has approx 10,000 miles and this happened the day before we were to leave for ellensburg, wa on central ave in great falls and then again in ellensburg at a goodwill store parking lot. I had a good friend killed by this happening on a Ford truck so am very concerned that it be taken care of. The friend was woodrow mccracken in the late 60's or early 70's at conrad, mt. I have contacted Chrysler and the dealer, but have been waiting over a week to hear back from Chrysler legal. Accident happened in ellensburg wa and the police report number is E03=09377. It was reported to my insurance (safeco) and that claim number is #844587412007 just think this should be reported. Dick brown.
