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

Sep 282006

Ram 2500 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,509 miles


The driver seat mechanism failed during mild acceleration, causing the driver to be thrown backwards. The seat tilt mechanism has a plastic and metal gearbox that broke causing the seat to swing forward under braking and backward under acceleration. This causes control problems as the movement is about 1 foot. The dealer was pressured to replace the failed part and claims this is the first time it has ever occurred. The truck was 15 months old at the time of failure with 56,000 miles on the odometer. The part has not been improved, so I am looking at replacing this mechanism every 15 months! this seat tilt mechanism on the power seat is not designed properly.
