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.

Ram 2500 Power Wagon 4WD 6-cyl

  • 140,000 miles


I had taken my truck to get it serviced because the steering felt off and when I would go to stop it sounded like metal shaking. When I got to the dealership they said the left tie rod was cracked and the steering linkage was just hanging there about to fall off. There had been a recall on it before I had purchased the truck so I called Chrysler group and they informed me that it was deemed that the truck didn't have the "specific recalled" part. So I had to pay out of pocket around $3,000 to fix a problem that there was a recall on. The exact same problem listed in the recall, "because the left tie rod ball stud may fracture." Is exactly what happened to mine. I was told by Chrysler group that since my truck had been checked for the specific part by the previous owner and it wasn't part of the recall they wouldn't cover it. They did say to keep all my reciepts in case there is a future recall on that specific part.

Dealer had my truck twice since the recall. He told me that there was a tie-rod assembly, steering linkage and front end needed. I only have 49,000 miles on it and there's a recall for these defects with Chrysler id 11V350000 - they old me that it would cost me $3,000 the first time and then I came back to get parts and now they are telling me they will give me a break on parts - this is fraud if there's a recall plus they should have fixed it the first time for free - it was totally under warranty at both times.

My Dodge Ram 2500 truck has a violent death wobble issue. At freeway speeds when hitting an uneven bump in the pavement the truck goes into a sustaining death wobble type motion in the front end. It is extremely scary, and quite dangerous. The truck is completely out of control and must be slowed to approximately 30 mph for the wobble to stop. I've taken my truck to the Dodge dealer several times and they cannot find the problem. I've replaced everything, the axle, steering dampener 3 times, ball joints, alignment adjustments, new tires. The problem goes away for a short time but then always returns. I'm afraid to drive my truck on the freeway and my kids are afraid to drive in my truck period. When it happens it's very wild and scary. All the traffic around me slows down and swerves to get away from my truck. It's not only dangerous and scary, but embarrassing too. I don't know what to do. I've tried everything and nothing is working. Dodge is pretty much useless. They turned their back on me since all the components check out fine. They said there's nothing that they can do. I need a resolution for this problem.

I have a Dodge Ram 2500 4 wheel drive truck that has 35200 miles on it. The front right wheel hub bearing has gone out and the other side is almost worn out the dealer wants $424 per wheel to replace them. I see that there is a recall ( 07V03800) on the 2006 1500 trucks but the dealer said that my truck is not covered due to the time has lapsed I have friends & relatives that have Dodge trucks that had bad hub bearings replaced under warranty. This is a safety issue due to the wheel can fall off if it goes too long. Please check this out before someone gets killed or hurt.

Severe crack in stock rim on 2005 Dodge 250 truck. Found when installing new tires. Large crack was approximately 1 inch long from outside edge towards center hairlining out to each side and would soon completely brake apart. Found on front of vehicle but could be any rim. Replacing rim with used rim. This could be an extreme crash problem if rim brakes apart at highway speeds.
