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.

2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 232015

Ram 3500 5.9L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 194,000 miles


front end wanders particularly when the vehicle hits bumps

I had a 2005 2500 diesel bought new which until it was totaled recently had no steering or front end problems evident. It had about 135000 miles when destroyed.

I liked the vehicle and wanted another one. I found a 2004 3500 with 195000 miles, which was in nice shape with more accessories than my old vehicle had and bought it. Right away I discovered the front end problem, which until then was not aware of. I've had the steering box replaced but that only helped the problem about 20%. I'm told that updating the vehicle to the latest Dodge design components will elevate the problem. I cannot live with what I have now. Do I fix it and, save my receipts and hope Dodge is forced to settle or just suck it up?
