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

Ram 3500 4WD

  • miles
My truck stalls unexpectedly up to 3 times a day almost alway in the evening. This happens within the first 3 miles that I drive. The truck is then very hard to get started and keep running. I have had the truck in for service 3 times, and have also contacted the customer service center and repeatedly get un returned phone calls. This truck is life threatening to me my family and anyone else that is around when this happens.
