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.

2005 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 052005

Dakota 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Incident-2005 Dodge Dakota, severe vibrations in rear of truck. So far dealer has changed 11 Goodyear Eagle ls & 8 wheels and vibration still there. Dealer advises that cannot change brand if tires without Dodge permission. Awaiting permission. The vibration is a safety problem as the rear end of truck will hop around on rough or poorly maintained roads. I have driven 5 separate 2005 Dakota's and the same problem occurred on all 5 trucks. Dealer response is they all do it, so it is not a problem. Also, second concern is the positioning of the 2 headrests in rear seating area as they reduce rearward vision by 25%. it would require a major dis-assembly of the inside back of truck to remove. They are not needed when the rear seats are removed.
