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.

2002 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 092003

Dakota 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,455 miles


Right rear door lock made buzzing noise when locked, which is startling when auto-lock engages on acceleration. Dealer repaired, and as I left parking lot, it began again, and was repaired. About 3 weeks later, left rear lock did the samething and was repaired. Of course, the dealer did not believe me until I took time off of work to take it to them. I asked them to replace all remaining motors, but they refused since it was still in warranty and not broken yet. Two months later, rear driver side automatic winow did not work.
