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

Dakota 4WD

This vehicle has been in the shop 18 times in less than 2 years. The biggest problem is with the brakes. The dealer tells me they are supposed to operate that way. These brakes are so bad I no longer call them anti-lock brakes I call them anti-stop brakes. Do I have to kill someone in an accident for them to be fixed? all I know is I have ordered a new truck and it is not a Dodge! I hesitate to even ride in any Chrysler product!!!
