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 #2

Jun 152008

Ram 2500 Slt Heavy Duty 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


I had taken the vehicle to Chrysler and they would not honor the problem. The exhaust manifold bolts had broken off and therefore creates an exhaust leak. This is very annoying, and I did not have the extra funds to fix it myself.
