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

May 252008

Dakota 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Dakota. While driving 55 mph, the vehicle stalled. The failure occurs constantly. The engine light illuminated and remains lit. The dealer stated that the fuel cap was not secured tightly enough. The fuel cap has been changed three to four times, but the failure still persists. In addition, it takes the contact 20 minutes to place fuel in the vehicle. If he pumps too quickly, the gas nozzle will shut off and gasoline will splash out. The mechanic stated that there is a filter on the tank that is clogged, which must be changed or cleaned after every oil change. The failure mileage was 69,000. Updated 06/17/08.
