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.

2008 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 092008


  • 4,100 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Dakota. While driving 45-50 mph, the vehicle stalled. The entire instrument panel failed to illuminate and the fuel gauge indicated that there was no fuel in the vehicle, when it was actually full. The vehicle would restart after several attempts, but the fuel gauge still indicated that it was empty. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but they could not identify the cause of the failure. The following week, the failure recurred and again on July 22, 2008. During the most recent failure, the body shop mechanic had to repair a small ding in her door. The contact was advised to take the vehicle back to the dealer. Once at the dealer, she was informed that the vehicle would need to remain there for inspection. She is currently awaiting the dealer to inform her if a rental will be provided in the interim. The contact is currently driving the vehicle and no repairs have been made. The failure mileage was 4,100 and current mileage was 4,400.
