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 #1

Mar 012008

Dakota 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,950 miles


I pulled into my driveway and left my truck running with the lights on. I unloaded some supplies and while standing on the ground reached in and turned the key off. The truck started rolling backwards. I could hear a clicking noise. I couldn't get away from the door and it drug me down. The left front tire ran over my left arm between the shoulder and elbow. I also had abrasions on both knees, the knuckles on my right hand and a 12 inch bruise across both hips.
