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 #4

Jun 202006

Dakota 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


Around 60,000 miles I was left stranded after the fuel pump failed. The repair cost over 700 dollars plus the cost of the tow. At 90,000 mile the fuel pump failed again. This time the truck quit in the middle of a major intersection up traffic and putting my life at risk. This time the repair cost $777 dollars plus the cost of the tow. I don't feel that a fuel pump should fail so often. Especially a such great cost for repair.
