Ram 1500

  • 40,500 miles
The tire pressure monitor system (TPMS) on my wheel has corroded to the point of breaking. This could cause severe bodily harm, up to including death to a person(s)in my vehicle on a rapid air loss of my tire(s). These vehicles valve stems are not suitable for northern territory where salt is used for winter months. Also check faulty hubcaps that trap water in and around valve stem.

Ram 1500 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
Aluminum valve stem/TPMS sensors on both front wheels corroded and failed at the same time causing two flat front tires and loss of steering. Proceeded to repair shop to have all (4) valve stems and (2) front tires replaced. Repair personnel informed us that this is an epidemic. According to them, in 2010, manufacturers became aware of this problem and began using rubber valve stem/TPMS sensors.
