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.

Ram 3500

  • 19,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Ram 3500. While driving 60 mph, the contact was informed by other motorists that his vehicle was on fire. He then noticed flames in the cabin and the bed, in addition to the fuel tank. He pulled over and called the fire department. The highway patrol also arrived at the scene. The vehicle left a trail of fire on the highway due to the fuel leak. The vehicle was towed to a salvage yard. The insurance company was notified and stated that there was a shortage between the fuel pump and the fuel tank. The dealer wanted to investigate; however, they will not inform the contact or the insurance company what caused the fire. The passenger sustained minor burns to his hands, arms, and hair. A police report was filed. The failure and current mileages were 19,000.
