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.

Front brakes lock up on wet surfaces during braking resulting in a loss of control. One time nearly slid into a curb sideways. Another time nearly slid into oncoming cross traffic at an intersection. Several times the Durango has slid in wet parking lots.

  • miles
Brakes lock and car highly succeptable to hydroplaning when turning, especially from a stopped position, on any level of rainfall. Most serious incident involved car turning 360 degrees twice then resting opposite side of roadway, in oncoming traffic lanes, after jumping a low median, completely out of my control. I was attempting to turn on a green arrow from a dead stopped position, going approx 0-5 mph when losing control of the car. I do not feel safe driving this vehicle.
