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.

problem #2

Oct 042010

The heater just steams up the windshield, even when turned off. Additionally, the radiator coolant is leaking into the cabin.

problem #1

Oct 012007

Durango SLT 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

  1. 30,000 miles. Engine hesitated and bogged down. Cause- Head gasket went out. Cost-Luckily still under warranty.

    2. 58,000 miles. Front end made a loud bang while backing up. Cause-Upper control arm allignmet bolts not secured properly due to shabby engineering design (design allowed adjustment shim/nut to rotate, causing the nut to rest on control arm instead of bolt, after a while the nut rotated and slammed into the seated position, thus the loud bang.

    3. 78,000 miles. Upper and lower ball joints bad, cannot allign wheels. Fix=Replace with "lifetime warrantied" ball joints, they will go out again, bad front end design (about $80 to replace yourself, otherwise $500 parts and labor)

    4. 120,000 miles. Engine shook loudly during start-up. Cause-Clutch fan faulty. $75

    5. 125,000 miles. Engine would not shift properly into 2nd gear. Cause-Bands needed adjustment. DIY if you can, otherwise tranny shops will try and charge you $1,500 for a new tranny.

    6. 128,000 miles. A/C compressor went out and Evaporator started leaking. Looking at $250 for compressor and $145 for evaporator. DIY yourself if you have the time and patience, otherwise looking @ $900+ for parts and labor.
