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.

problem #1

Ram 2500 SLT 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles


My Dodge Ram truck has been one problem after another. It's great when it is running (few and far). I guess you get what you pay for. The Dodge Ram is still the best value; but I do not think Ford guys have this issue. The linkage broke on my transmission, so I had to manually go underneath the truck and shift into gear while the emergency brake was engaged in my suit. Poor quality. I will still buy American, but the guys who make Dodge truck parts wake up. This is why we are losing auto market share; lack of pride in their work or too much cutting cost or both!
