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

  • 50,000 miles


Received recall - left side ball stud to replace. Called local dealer Jan 6. instructed to call back in 7 - 10 days - called back Jan 13 -- told to come in, so not need appointment. ( 45 miles to dealer one way) visited dealer on Jan 14th - looked at truck and informed me that they had to order parts. -- called Jan 24th - will call us in a couple of days, no call. Called Feb 4th - told our parts were not in and did not know when the parts would be in. Informed that Chrysler was only giving the dealer one set a week. To date (Feb 19th, 2014) we have not received a call from dealer, replacement is not completed. Note: Notification stated that the ball stud on my truck may fracture under certain driving conditions and this could cause a loss of directional control and or crash without warning. To me this is serious and needs attention ! this truck is used to haul cattle & horses & farm duty. I am concerned.

I have a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup truck- the dashboard is reflected onto the windshield and impairs vision, especially when it is sunny and makes it hard to see clearly through the windshield. I have had four other trucks of the exact same size etc. But never had a vision problem from the dashboard being superimposed onto the windshield.
