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

Dakota V6

The problem is extremely annoying and extremely unsafe as the darn truck can stall at random.

problem #1

Jul 012009


  • Automatic transmission
  • 186,173 miles

My truck stalls with no warning. It does not make a difference if I'm at a red light or doing any speed and when I try to start it it sounds like I am out of gas. But every time it stalls and I turn the key to the on position, my gauges do not work and my odometer blinks four times and says the letter( no bus ). Sometimes it starts in 5 min, sometimes 3 hours. I know when I turn my key to the on position, and my gauges work, it's going to start.
