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

2005 Dodge Dakota tilt steering does not work, brakes shuddered. ** answer required*** it was determined that the problem was not the brake but that the rear axle had been milled incorrectly causing the brakes to shudder and vibrate. The consumer was involved in an accident in which the brakes shuddered and locked up. As a result he rear ended another vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the brakes were checked. Neither the technician nor the computer found any problems with the brakes. The consumer traded the vehicle in for another 2005 Dodge Dakota.
