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.

1999 Dodge Ram 3500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012009

Ram 3500 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles


So I have a 1999 Dodge ram van I bought it used in 2007. after two years the van would not pass inspection cause the frame was rusted out at the steering column. so I took it to many mechanics and all of them told me the same thing “junk it”. Now at that time there was not a spot of rust on the body of the van or under the rear wheels. but the front frame had flakes of the frame falling off that was bigger than my hand. so in my rage I call dodge and they tell me to take it to a dealer and have them look at it. So I drive it to the dealer and the dealer tells me "hay what do you expect you live in the northeast. we are sorry but the van is shot. Sorry." Man sorry doesn’t cut it when you spend 35000.00 dollars on a vehicle it should last longer than ten years. BAD COMPANY I will never buy a Dodge. so if you are think of getting a dodge don't and if you have one sell it.
