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.

The contact owns a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500. While driving 35 mph, the contact heard a noise coming from the front driver side of the vehicle. The contact took the vehicle apart and stated that the cause of the failure was the front driver side wheel hub. Approximately one month later, the noise recurred when the vehicle came to a stop. The contact removed the front passenger side wheel and found that the universal joint failed. The failure mileage was 85,000 and current mileage was 91,000.

Ram 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Left wheel bearing on my 2004 Ram 2500 truck has been replaced 8 times. The failure occurs under normal driving conditions. Two dealerships have worked on the problem but they have not been able to correct the malfunction. The seal of the wheel bearing has been broken every time. The first incident occured shortly after I purchased the truck. Mileage was approximately 2200 miles. Recently, the last four times, the seal was broken approximately every 3000 miles. Dodge dealership (arrigo Dodge, West palm beach, Florida) claims that Chrysler will not authorize them to repair additional parts (spindles, front end, etc.), however, a Chrysler representative has stated that the dealership has the authority to make any repairs that need to be done. Dealership claims that this is the first time that a vehicle has been brought in with this type of repair.
