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

  • miles


After less than 10000 miles the windshield is pitted to the extent that it is very difficult to see when driving with a glare condition or at night when it is raining. I drive approximately 400 miles per week and it seems that this condition should not manifest itself for another 70000 miles or so. I have considered that I live in a somewhat sandy area of the country and that sand is used on the roads during the winter however, after comparing the windshield to other vehicles with much higher mileage from this same area, it appears that the glass used is "soft." I hace also noticed that while drivng in the rain, the precipitation makes a very high pitched noice when hitting the windshield. The condition of the windshield at present does not pose an immediate safety threat but I do feel that the glass used may be of "cheap construction'" thereby perhaps creating a hazarous condition should an object strike the windshield.
