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.

1998 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)

Durango XLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 133,500 miles


Dodge Durango 5.9L, I had it parked and hit the brakes and the pedal went to floor, I started to check and I can see fluid all over the rear axle. I took to a shop that does complete brake work and all the lines were rusted so bad. They make up a new set and in two days it was back and $1300.00 for all that work. I do expect that the brake lines would last the life of the unit. I had them replace all the flex lines and fitting and valves. They did good work but it is the idea about all of that. 10 hrs of labor to make up the lines.
