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.

problem #1

Apr 182009

Ram 2500 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,500 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500. The contact noticed the dpf indicator on the dashboard. She checked the owner's manual and it stated that when that light illuminated, the dpf needed to be cleaned and if not, the vehicle could catch fire. She took the vehicle to the dealer who upgraded the software and told her that if they did anything other than that, the warranty would be void. The vehicle had not been repaired at the time of the complaint. She sent an email to the manufacturer and was currently awaiting a response. The current mileage was approximately 17,000. The failure mileage was approximately 7,000. Updated 5/6/10 updated 06/18/10
