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.

2001 Dodge Ram 3500 Owner Comments

problem #6

Ram 3500

I had a tire sold by big O tire company on my Dodge Ram truck. When the truck was parked in my driveway the left front tire sidewall blew out. The truck hadn't been driven in 2 days and showed no signs of a problem on the last days it was driven. The initial explosion was deafening when the outer wall blew and then there was a second, a more quiet, deflation of the actual tire. Had this happened while being driven it could have been catastrophic. The company replaced the tire no questions asked and inspected all of the others but the nature of the failure has given myself concerns.
