Ram 1500 10-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 22,010 miles
Two years ago I totaled a Dodge Ram 1500 srt-10. Only days before the wreck that could have taken my life, I purchased new tires for that vehicle. Laden with company supplies, the rear end of the vehicle suddenly spun out of control at 65 mph. I flipped 8 times, landing on the roof 3 times and was lucky to walk away. As I mentioned, it has been two years since this accident. Why is it now I become, by my own merits, aware of the NHTSA recall affecting that exact issue. The failure of the responsible company to notify me of this document recall, however slight, could have cost me my life. The ensuing financial repercussions from that accident will never be remedied. I was found at fault for the accident and it makes me furious and sad that no one ever mentioned the possibility of my innocence within this information.
