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 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles


The vehicle was parked and idling and without warning or occupancy of driver it popped from park to reverse, striking another car. This was the only incident with the vehicle. Took vehicle to dealer, and they could not demonstrate what had happened. It was as though when it was in park it was not always in park and the same was when in reverse. A police officer witnessed the entire incident. There was a police report due to the fact that the vehicle that was hit had passengers in tow. The dealer did not take this seriously. However, the service representative witnessed how one could place the car in reverse and there was no movement. However, in repair shop they could not duplicate the problem.
