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

Nov 112005

Dakota 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I purchased a 2005 Dodge Dakota and 6 months after my purchase the vehicles idler was jumping from 1 to 3 and then vehicle dies. It continues to this. I have bringing my truck in to be serviced sense 11-2005 and 2 months ago I was told that there was no fix for the issue. I have been battling with Chrysler for the lemon law, and they state my vehicle has been repaired. To this date no repair, vehicle died in the middle of intersection and was re-ended.
