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 6-cyl Diesel

  • miles
Left tie rod ball stud fractured while making a sharp left hand turn in a parking lot. This item was replaced by Chrysler approximately two years prior under a recall. I towed the truck to autoworld Dodge - petaluma (Chrysler dealership) for repair. They insisted the broken part was out of warranty and was my responsibility to repair. I had no choice but to have them make the repairs at my expense. This failure was a clearly known problem, but they would not stand behind their product. Is there any recourse for their failure to comply with an obviously recalled part (NHTSA campaign id #11V350000, action #PE11009)?
