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 #2

Apr 152015

Ram 3500 4x4 5.9L Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 100,200 miles


64,000, Dodge rebuilt front end with replacement parts. I have now rebuilt the front end at a cost of over a thousand dollars. Now have the uncontrollable death wobble on all new parts. The original front end did not wobble but a toe rod end snapped when I was driving about 5 miles an hour.

problem #1

Jan 012005

Ram 3500 4x4 Cummins

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles

Front end will shake violently for no apparent reason when running down the road above 40 mph. It just takes a small normality in the road to set the truck off. The only way to cure this is to slow the truck way down to about 30 mph until it quits. Has been doing this since new. I put on a new dual rancho 7000 steering stabilizer and it took care of the problem for awhile. Truck has 108K and it has started back up again. I will be taking it to the dealer as part of the H46 Mopar Steering Linkage Safety Recall.

Chrysler has problems here and hopefully they will step up to the plate and get this corrected.
