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.

2004 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Dakota 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles


2004 Dodge Dakota with 14,000 miles truck <1year old front brake rotors warped not covered by Chrysler from searching the internet it appears this is an on going problem as numerious other individuals have reported the same problem in Dodge Dakota trucks. Rotors sould not warp in 14,00 mile S under normal driving conditions. This appears to be a material defect in the rotors. I have replaced brakes numerious times on other vehicles I have owned and never had this occur with so few miles.
