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

Oct 082007

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 151,398 miles


While my 1998 Dodge Durango being driven a on surface street, one of two 8 mm studs that are welded to the power brake booster and that attach the master brake cylinder to the power booster suddenly broke during braking which disengaged the master cylinder which then caused a total loss of vehicle hydraulic braking. To avoid a rear end crash the vehicle had to change lanes and the parking brake was used to eventually bring the vehicle to a stop in the middle of an intersection. I am the original owner of this vehicle and the master cylinder is original equipment and has never been removed or serviced since it was installed by the factory.
