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.

Dakota V8

  • Automatic transmission

This has happened twice on the Driver's side window. The part costs $60 on Amazon but the dealerships charge $275 for it. There are complaints for this issue all over the internet. Multiple You-tube videos out there to show you how to fix it yourself. And yet...Dodge refuses to admit that there is an issue.

Dakota V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

Driving home, then BANG!!!! Felt like something hit my drivers door! I looked, no bleeding, was not shot!!! Then all of sudden, like magic! My window was going down by itself? So the clip, or cable snapped on this thing! Was told the whole regulator needs to be replaced? So I did like any other cheap ass would! Raised the windo, install a metal wedge to keep the window up, and JB weld it! THERE! Problem fixed! Never had a truck that feels so cheap!
