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

All 2005 Dodge Dakotas were built missing some of its trailer tow package options, first is the aux. Trans cooler, second is the heavyduty cooling system, I compared mine to everyone on the lot and they were all built the same way. I fell as if Chrysler is miss leading the consumer. I contacted customer assistance several times only to get the run around and I was always referred back to the dealer who in my opinion was not only rude, refused to return my phone calls, although I am very unsatisfied with the dealers responce in the matter, I im very upset with Chrysler due to the fact that they are the company who made and advertised the veh. And listed it's options. The love the truck but I just wish it had the options I paid for.
