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.

Ram 2500

  • 56,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 quad St/slt. He purchased the vehicle in December of 2006. During a routine wheel alignment appointment, the mechanic could not complete the alignment since the front wheel bearings were defective. In June of 2009, he heard a noise coming from the left front wheel. The mechanic confirmed that the right and left wheel bearing and axle joints needed to be repaired. The warranty has expired. The estimated repair cost was $1,100. The vehicle will be repaired with after market wheel bearings and a drive axle U joint. The manufacturer will be notified. The contact experienced identical failure with a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 quad St/slt which he thought was due to the tires. The failure and the current mileages were 56,000.
