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

Aug 152005

Dakota 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50 miles


2005 Dodge Dakota. The contact stated the vehicle vibrated when braking. The vehicle has been taken to the dealership twice. The first time the dealership replaced the rear axles and drums and resurfaced the rotors. The vehicle was test driven, and it was given back to the contact. The second timethe brakes have to be redesigned, and will not be able to be fixed them until November. The vehicle was shaking as soon as the contact got iton August 15, 2005. He thought the rotors needed to be broken in at this time.
