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

Mar 152005

Dakota 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


I ben having a problem with a number of front suspension and especially front brake problems which began about four months after purchase of the vehicle. The dealership absolutely refuses to investigate my problems. I nearly lost control of my vehicle at high speed on two different occasions. If there had been heavy traffic it would have resulted in a crash. I am about O replace my third set of front brake pads as they are unevenly wearing on the rotors. I have vibration in the front end constantly, and at 30 mph and above heavy sound of "clunking."
