Dashboard cracked in three places all within a couple of weeks. (July 2010) there have been no wrecks or stress placed upon the vehicle before this happened. Dodge should be forced to replace this dashboard because it is defective plus poses an extra hazardous situation if there was a collision, pieces of the dashboard plastic may become deadly projectiles, injuring or even killing the occupants of this truck.

Ram 1500

  • 900 miles
Mechanisims that hold all four doors open in the half and full position on my 2010 Dodge Ram crew cab truck do not hold door secure enough to prevent accidental unwanted closing of door which in turn strikes person while entering/exiting vehicle. While serious injury has not occurred yet, it's only a matter of time before it does. I am especially concerned for hand, finger, or head type injuries with children and even adults not aware of this condition when entering or exiting my vehicle. Even though I am very aware of this situation I could also get hit by a door unexpectedly. My dealer feels, and I agree, problem does not appear to be result of defective manufacturing or improper installation but rather improperly designed parts. Replacement of affected parts in like kind would only result in same problem. Re-designed parts such as stronger compression spring and/or increased depth of scallops in holding bars are necessary to more firmly hold doors on their detent until occupant desires to close door with his or her hand.
