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.

2005 Dodge Ram 3500 Owner Comments

problem #3

Ram 3500 6-cyl

  • 87,700 miles


I just purchased a Dodge Ram 3500 4WD drw, from a dealership 200 miles away. On the way home I drove over a bridge on the highway and the truck went into a violent shake that was close to being uncontrollable. It did it 2 more times that night. Everytime I drive over 55mph and hit a bump it sets what is called the death wobble off. I have replaced steering stabilizer with a larger one, new track bar bushings, outer tie rod end, had the wheels and tires checked and balanced, and an alignment done. It has been to the Dodge dealership, a big truck alignment shop, and a 4wheel drive shop. All of them said it checks out good but they know there is a problem. Everyone who has drove it comes back scared! this is a vehicle that could really cause a bad accident if not controlled or fixed. The dealers are aware of this problem and say it is a design flaw. Dodge needs to recall this problem before someone is injured or killed.

When I drive above the speed of 70 mph on highway or interstate and hit a small ripple or bump in the road my front end will start hopping out of control.
