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.

S10 direct reply- letter to the secretary from constituent requesting assistance with a potential safety issue regarding Chrysler vehicle (s); full document not imaged. 2005 Dodge Ram 2500. The consumer stated the gas tank needed to be replaced. The consumer stated he was never able to properly put gas in the vehicle from the day, he purchased it. The consumer stated the first time he attempted to put gas in the vehicle, he could only add four cents at a time without the nozzle shutting off and the gas spilling out. The gas tank was replaced with a used one. However, the replacement tank failed. The consumer stated inferior parts were used which caused the gas tank to leak.

While driving on my way home from the grocery store I got a real strong diesel smell coming into the cabin, I was half a block away so I kept driving got into my driveway and popped the hood to find injector line #4 leaking like crazy turned the truck off and the next day I went to the dealer and bought two new injector line, replaced the bad one and kept one for spare, another 8 months later the same line went out again, so I replaced it with the spare I had in the truck I went back to the dealer and bought another two, my 3rd one went out a week before halloween while shopping for my 2 year old sons costume I was on the freeway going back home with my wife, my son, and my dad I got the same smell into the cabin and this time I got some smoke into the cabin also I freaked out and got off the freeway and put my wife, son and dad into a taxi and sent them home and I replaced a 3rd injector line, this has to stop before somebody gets hurt, Dodge has to step up and do something about it or I have a feeling they will pay alot of mobey if something bad happens.

I was in a single car accident on November 14, 2005 in a 2005 Dodge Ram pickup truck. I hit a deer and then hit a tree going 45-50 mph. My air bag did not deploy and the fuel switch did not turn off. I do not understand why the airbag did not deploy as it should have.

I have an 05 Ram 2500 quad cab hemi truck with 3,200 miles on it. Since new the truck has had an erratic idle and would occasionally die when shifting from reverse to drive. The PCM has been flashed, the throttle body is projected to be replaced next. This problem is getting progressively worse as the truck recently stalled in traffic three times in a ten minute period. I will also be filling a similar complaint for my 05 hemi durango limited.

Stalling. Upon reading the ap article about Dodge Ram 1500 stalling I was compelled to write to add the same incidence occurring in the hemis. (we have a 2005 2500 series hemi). If you search under "Dodge hemi stalling" you will find numerous complaints documenting incidents covering several years and Dodge's flash solution. Our brand new truck sat in their shop for 6 weeks awaiting the release of the latest flash to solve this problem. We have had no reoccurrance of stalling problems since the flash, but have heard of several Dodge hemi owners who have experienced the same problem.
