Ram 2500

  • 19,000 miles


I own a 2007 Dodge 2500 mega cab and have now experienced the so called Dodge "death-wobble" on 3 separate occasions in the last 2 months. Traveling at highway speeds whether a smooth road or if I hit a small pothole the truck begins shaking violently and does not stop until speed is reduced significantly (under 30 mph). I have researched the issue via the web and have seen a news report of this happening to others with the newer models of the Dodge Ram series. I currently have the vehicle scheduled for inspection (2 Dec 09) with the dealer for possible repairs but wanted to submit a complaint as I believe this is happening to many other motorists as reported by wsoc in charlotte nc. I only knew of contacting the NHTSA because of the news report I found. This reoccuring situation if not corrected is a safety issue which if not corrected is an "extreme" danger to all motorists on the road.

Ram 2500

  • 12,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 mega cab. When driving speeds higher than 55 mph the front-end of the vehicle would shimmy if he strikes a small bump or crack in the road. Usually after brake application the wobbling stops. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but the technicians could not identify the cause of the failure. The technician added that the "death wobble" was a consistent failure with his model type. The vehicle was taken to another dealer, and a temporary repair was made. The manufacturer was notified, but they would not confirm that the failure exists with this model type. The failure mileage was 12,000. The current mileage was 17,000.

Ram 2500 Diesel

  • 30,000 miles


I have a Dodge 2007 2500 pickup 4X4 diesel 6.7. I have experienced a violent shaking when driving 55-70 mph and hitting a ridge or expansion joint on the road. I was told it was the tires after the first two times it happened, I replaced the tires and experienced it 3 more times before I could get it to the shop. After getting a rod replaced in the front end and the shop stating it was fixed, it happened again within the nest 150 miles. I began searching the internet for answers and came across the "Dodge death wobble" and found this has been an ongoing problem for this truck for years. I really believed when this happened the first few times, I was about to wreck or worse, wreck someone else. The truck shakes so violently the driver has zero control. It must look pretty bad from other drivers views as they quickly stop and get out of the way. This should not be happening to a new truck and should be a recall and not make the buyer have to pay to have parts replaced as I have had to do. The truck is so bad I cannot allow it to be driven by my wife or anyone else for fear they could be killed. My wife worries every time I go to work as this has become a big source of stress in our lives.

I have a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500. I am experiencing the infamous "death wobble". when driving at normal speed for the road conditions the truck will violently shake after going over a bump. It has nearly caused me to wreck 3 times now. I live in a rural area of Alaska so I have not been able to get to a shop yet. I contacted a Dodge dealer in anchorage and they said that it is probably the stabilizer shock on the front end. I have read more about it online and am discovering that it's a severe issue.

Ram 2500

  • 47,000 miles
I am experiencing a problem with my steering on my 2007 2500 Ram, I took it into a dealership for repair and found that the steering linkage is under recall. The problem I described to them is identical to that of the recall description. I have been told that the power steering pump is shot and I need to replace. This does not make sense since the vehicle only has 47000 miles and the description matches that of the recall. Secondly, I was told that the parts aren't readily available and I would have to wait 2-3 weeks. I cannot turn this vehicle to the right at times and this could cause an accident or worse!

Ram 2500

The steering linkage on my 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 disconnected at the tierod end causing me to not have steering while traveling down the road. The truck was taken in and I was told there was a recall. I was then advised that the recall was suspended. The tierod end came apart due to mechanical defect.

  • Automatic transmission

Going 50+ and hitting a bump in the road causes the truck to enter a "death wobble" that will not correct until the vehicle is stopped. Violent shaking from the front end that can be felt through the steering and makes it feel like the door are going to fall off.
