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 SLT 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 131,109 miles

Driving along and then a loud bang. Truck physically jumped up, shook and and stumbled down the road at 60 MPH as one tire was straight and the other dragging sideways (as if sharp turn) Very lucky not to get sucked off the road into the adjacent 20 ft water filled ditch.

Truck shook violently and finally came under control somehow, all wheels pointing in the a same direction. Shaking has destroyed my front end. Need to replace ball joints, control rods, one tire, brakes etc and alignment. $ 3k
