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

I have been to my dealer on two occasions and they have told that the brake pedal location and travel changed with the 2000 year models and that mine is "normal". the problem and my concern is that one can press the brake pedal andinitial position and travel makes it possible to then hit the accelerator pedal at the end of the stroke. This happened to me on several occasions and luckily no accidents or injuries have occurred with me or my vehicle. At my dealer I was told that there were a couple other Dodge models where the same complaint has been made. I know that this is a problem and that there will be accidents because of it. I also fear that because this is a 15-passenger van, it is often used by schools and daycare to Transport lots of small children. I don't even want to think about the catastrophic possibilities of one of these vehicles pulling up to large groups of small children. Please investigate this issue. I would be more than happy to demonstrate the problem for anyone.
