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.

2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 242006

Ram 2500 4WD Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 11,000 miles


While accelerating to pass another vehicle, the cruise control locked into accelerate mode and could not be disengaged. Strong braking was necessary for several miles and even so the vehicle could not be held below 85 mph. I pulled off into a weigh station and could not decelerate rapidly enough and had to put the transmission in neutral. The transmission would not disengage and the vehicle went into a spin on the pavement. Was able to shut down the engine, which apparently rebooted the computer controlling the cruise control and I was able to continue on.
