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.

problem #2

Dakota 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3 miles


Purchased 2005 Dodge Dakota quad cab with 3 miles, noticed a vibration, shimmy in steering wheel and floor board at all speeds and on all types of roads, it increases on bumpy or construction roads. Have been to dealership 7 times, they balanced the tires they installed new tires then they installed rear axles and drums but vibration continues. The last couple of times they said normal for that vehicle or could not duplicate but the air pressure in tires is always changed or tires rotated, . I filed a lemon law complaint but of course the verdict is drives normal. I just want a vehicle that doesn't shake when I drive, could be hazzard.safty concern.

Dakota 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles
Dt when the consumer applied the brakes, the vehicle vibrated so badly, the consumer was unable to control the vehicle. The dealer replaced the left front wheel bearing, rotors, front and rear drums. The consumer called daimler Chrysler and they were suppose to get back with the consumer today. Can't set minutes on clock radio and won't keep correct time. Clock radio has to be reordered. Speedometer ticks at times. Dealer could not duplicate condition.
