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 #2

Aug 052007

Ram 3500 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,900 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Dodge Ram 3500. While driving 70 mph, the contact struck a bump in the road and the vehicle began to shake. He took the vehicle to the mechanic and they informed him that the failure was caused by the tie rod. The contact called a Dodge dealer and they sent him service bulletin number 22-005-06, which was issued on October 7, 2006. The manufacturer stated that because the vehicle was serviced at a non-Chrysler dealer, there was nothing that they could do from that point. The contact spent approximately $937 on repairs. The current mileage was 44,000 and failure mileage was 43,900.
