Ram Van 1500

Urgent safety issue: Driving down the road vehicle loses complete steer ability!!! had towed to dealership and found frame rusted through (due to factory routing of A/C water drainage) and caused steering mechanism to separate where the steering connection is!!! dealership is not acknowledging a recall nor resolution and based on the number of these vehicles still on the road (now primarily as low budget work vans) I fully expect to see injury and deaths if this is not addressed immediately!!! I have done all I know to do (including searching the web where I see multiple alerts to similar incidents) so any injury or death due to further inaction is on the conscious of the recipient of this urgent warning!!!!!!!!!!!

I have not had an incident, but I am concerned with my vehicle. I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 van conversion. My concern is that, with the con versions with large bay windows. I feel that the passengers have no protection whatsoever with side impact accidents. Could your organization investigate these before reports of fatalities start coming in.
