Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #2

Jun 042012

Dakota LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles


This is the third time for this truck. The brake seizes up without much notice. The engine will bog down and start to over heat. When the truck starts shaking, it is time to pull over and hose the brake down. Happened twice to the passenger side, and now the first time for the drivers side. I will be replacing the caliper later tonight. Losing faith in this truck. I am afraid to venture too far from home now. If you are reading this. I feel your pain.
