2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 012007

Ram 2500 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 67,000 miles


While driving my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 quad cab 4X4 cummins diesel at approximately 35 mph, my right front tire came off causing me to lose control of my vehicle. Exact cost of repair is yet to be decided, but damage was more than moderate. The lug nuts did not fall off. The hub bolts sheered off without warning. Damage is in that tire, the rotor, brake system, front right quarter panel, right side front passenger's door, and suspension system. The police officer said we were lucky to be going so slow around a curve with a 40 foot embankment drop-off. I have read nhsta bulletins and Dodge forum websites and found that this problem is more than common. My truck did have a slight vibration on bumps which I was told was normal. However, after this incident and reading hundreds of other complaints, this issue needs to be handled now...with sole responsibility lying on Dodge corporation. This is unsafe. People have been hurt. All readers say the same things and agree that Dodge will not do anything about this problem. We need someone to confront the automakers and demand safety recalls immediately.
