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.

2007 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #3

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • 49,000 miles


2007 Dodge Dakota slt quad cab (4-door), 4WD V-8 flexfuel w/49,000 miles, purchased 2 years ago with 22,000 miles. Drive very conservatively. Infrequently haul light loads, and have never hauled a trailer. Noticed front-end rattling noise when driving over common everyday road bumps. Found both tie rod ends were sloppy and at risk of falling off. Also found the lower right ball joint had unacceptable play. Had to replace all three parts. Old parts are available.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Dakota. While driving approximately 35 mph on normal road conditions, the vehicle began to vibrate excessively without warning. The contact heard a loud noise coming from the tires and the ride performance was very poor. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection and they stated that the failure was related to the front lower ball joints. The vehicle was repaired under the service warranty and all four tires were replaced. The vehicle was taken to the authorized dealer on a separate occasion for the identical failure; however, the parts were unavailable and placed on a massive back order. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 19,000 and current mileage was 29,000.
