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

Dakota SLT 4.7L V8

My 2004 Dodge Dakota SLT was bought brand new with 14 miles on it. But, in typical Chrysler fasion, after it started getting closer to 60,000 miles I started having problems. 1 is that a bolt on my exhaust manifold has somehow sheered off and now I have an exhaust leak that you can smell and HEAR when the truck is first started. After it idles for a few minutes it subsides some.
