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.

1998 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 202009

Dakota 4.4 V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 160,000 miles

After the ordering the brake parts my mechanic went into the axle to replace the e-brake cable and found chips of metal floating in the gear oil of the axle housing. My axle was bad. There were no signs of it going out or warnings. I am amazed that I didn't end up in an accident somewhere on the highway.

My biggest complaint is the hardship it is to find Dodge Dakota 4x4 parts of ANY kinda, ANY where! There needs to be an easier way to fix this style of Dodge.
