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 HD 5.9L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

Transmission just dumped all of its fluid onto the ground after I just towed a travel trailer 4 blocks. I had it towed to the dealer and they had to remove the transmission and tighten the torque converter bolts then reinstall the transmission. The warranty was up at 70k miles. This was just the first in a string of complaints and problems I have had with this truck!!! STAY AWAY FROM DODGE!
