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.

2001 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,400 miles


Dodge Dakota rotor warps. I have less than 16,000 miles and the car began shaking upon applying brakes. Increase stopping distance. Took vehicle to dealer and was told my rotors were warped. Offered to turn at my expense. No other solutions offered. Researched problem and found to be widespread. Taking vehicle back to dealer. Also liftgate improperly latches unless slammed hard. A/C blower motor went out in winter and was unable to clear windows.
