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.

2003 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #3

Have had to replace 2 of 4 window cables and motors. Truck is now back in for third window in a seven month period. Windows are hardly ever rolled up or down. Vehicle has 46000 miles on it, proving not a lot of wear and tear. First window, was rolling back up, got half way and fell down. Second window fell while in parking lot and no one was around. Third window fell when closing door.
