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 #4

Nov 092005

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


I own a 1998 Dodge Durango. The headlight switch has been replaced previously for failure to operate properly, ie: The headlights would not turn on. Subsequently, the replacement switch failed to operate properly however with slight inward pressure on the switch, the lights would come on. I have recently been informed that the switch will not pass state safety inspection in its current condition. I think there is a design flaw or manufacturing defect in this switch because of recurring failures, and since it has become a safety issue by decree of the state, I feel it should be examined nationwide for recall consideration.
