The "Dodge death wobble" is for real. While driving my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500 on the interstate, I went over a small bump in the road. The whole truck began shaking violently. It was extremely hard to control and did not stop shaking until I slowed down to under 20 mph. This is extremely unsafe and Dodge should be forced to fix the problem. This problem has occurred more than five times in my truck.

Rust spots in 1999 Dodge Ram pickup- service advisor called it rail dust, but won't buff from paint. Owners son acknowledges rust in paint. Owners son and I talked to owner, he said tha the needs to get a manafacturer's representative in on it. Was told by owners son on Feb 8 Chrysler rep would not offer to replace truck, but have it repainted. This is unacceptable since it's a new truck with 800 miles, 212 of which was on odometer already from dealer. I need help or information because I don't want a new repainted truck. I want a replacement truck. Truck is now at dealer pending manafacture representative's decision. I didnt want to put on a lot of miles so told dealer to keep it. Help me with this problem.
