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

(reported on)

Dakota 4WD

  • miles


Have had an ongoing problem with hesitation upon acceleration esp. Uphill. Dealer finally (after warranty was up and we have had it in for the same problem at least three times now within the warranty period) found that there was an airleak some where. Also performed a tune up. Straps on back of console are both broke, scratch legs when sitting in back seat. Ran out of gas twice on 1/8 of a tank, then ran out at 1/4 tank. They replace the "sending unit"? at a cost of $170 approx. (no longer under warranty by 3000 miles)
