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.

We purchased our Durango used last year. After 6 months it started dying when sitting at a stoplight more than 20 seconds... then it progressed to dying when putting it in drive from reverse. I have taken it to several mechanics who could not tell me what is wrong with it. I have payed over $2000. to find a serious diagnosis. It won't throw any codes. Last week I went on a 280 mile road trip. It seemed fine, but the next morning when I got up the peice of sh*! would not start. It tries but won't turn over. It sure looks pretty, but it is the HUGEST hunk of junk. The crappiest part is that we were going to trade it in for the cash for clunkers deal... Now the f'ing thing won't start! AHHH!!! Has someone else encountered this situation???

CAR WILL QUIT RUNNING AT THE WORST TIME. WHEN STARTING, IT WILL TURN OVER BUT NOT COMPLETELY START. IT'S NOT FLOODED AND FUEL FILTER IS CLEAN. FUSES ARE NEW. WHAT ELSE CAN I LOOK INTO?
