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.

2000 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 112007

(reported on)

Dakota Sport 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 116,000 miles


the problem is that the threads for the Brake caliper bolts strip out of the Steering Knuckle. the only fix is if caught soon is to Helicoil the threads or replace the Steering Knuckle(dealer cost part only $415.00). I haved tried to find a replacement part from the Junk yard and they all have the same Problem. I have talked to my Brake man and he has been replacing these steering knuckles on alot of chrysler products. including Jeeps and all Dodge Trucks. The bolts come loose, strip, then you have Braking problems IE. pulling, increased stopping distance, no brakes on one side
