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.

2006 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 60,000 miles


Continued failure of the exhaust manifold bolts on Dodge 4.7 liter engines. I believe all repairs should be done under the emissions warranty up to 80,000 miles but that is not happening. Heads on the bolts are breaking at 50,00 and 60,00 miles. The bolts being used are clearly of bad design or defective from the factory..first the bolts on the passenger side failed and now the bolts on the driver side have failed. Internet is full of forums talking about this particular engine having this type of problem which has to be a violation of the vehicles emissions requirements.
