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 #2

May 042005

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 142,000 miles


Brakes failed at 50mph. Slammed into the back of semi truck at 40mph and totaled vechile. The seatbelt restrant and airbag system failed to engage. I slammed into the steering wheel to break 2 ribs and crack my sternum. If the airbags would have went off I wouldnt be having back and neck problems either. I wish Dodge would help us instead of hurting us.

Shoulder restraint fails to operate in cold temperatures (less than 25 degrees). Chrysler will not replace untill dealership can duplicate problem. Chrysler has been notified that this is unacceptable, due to unreliability of said seat belt. If seat belt will not retract, children will not have the means to be safely restrained in the vehicle.
