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.

The whole truck began shaking so violently, I thought I may loose control, or the truck would not stay upright. The shaking continued until I stopped on the shoulder. A careful inspection revealed no evidence of loose parts. I drove another 30 minutes (5 on freeway, 25 on surface roads) without another incident. Baffling. I have driven this diesel truck in many conditions and on many surfaces with this truck. Vibrations have been strong sometimes in the past, set off by "wash-boards" in the pavement...seem to be worse in the "tractor trailer/slow" lanes. But this event was 2-3 X the intensity.

The driver's side floor mat keeps coming unhooked from the hooking device installed in the carpet. The floormat and the hooking device were both replaced at approx. 7000 mile because of this problem. It has now become a problem again and the dealer advises that Chrysler will not correct the problem again. I have contacted Chrysler by E-mail and they want me to go to another dealer and see if they will correct it. The next closest dealer is 28 miles away and my truck gets about 14 mi. Per gal. I feel like Chrysler is giving me the run around. My 2009 Ram 2500 only has 12,400 miles on it. Why can't Chrysler take care of this problem rather than trying to make another dealer take care of it?
