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

I purchased a 2006 Dodge Dakota on July 2, 2014 from crowson auto world, 541 hwy 15, po box 889, louisville, ms 39339. Upon getting this vehicle home I discovered that the seat belts were not properly working. On three occasions I returned vehicle to dealer and each time dealer failed to repair this vehicle. I had vehicle inspected at other dealers and found that "seat belt lite and chime do not work" and "instrument safety lights are inoperable". I need help to convince the dealer that it is not legal to sale vehicles with defective safety equipment.
