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.

In the morning I stop at a stop sign, hit the gas and nothing for a second. Then it kicks into gear and jerks the truck forward.

Durango tranmissions don't work-period. We have had 4, yes, 4 rebuilt transmissions!!! This has been happening about every 15,000 miles since 28,000. It shift gears like a monkey driving a manual transmission. We have had problems with it slipping in EVERY gear. I don't think this transmission is fixable because it was never built right in the first place.

I WAS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY 99 DURANGO SHIFTING INTO A HIGHER GEAR FROM A STOP (FELT LIKE I WAS PULLING MY SNOWMOBILE TRAILER) I HAD THE SPEED SENSOR REPLACED IN THE TRANSMISSION AND NOW I EVEN GET BETTER GAS MILEAGE. IT DIDNT SHOW UP ON ANY COMPUTER TESTS UNTIL THE SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. ITS ONLY A $26.00 DOLLAR PART AT AUTOZONE. I HAD IT DONE AT A GARAGE FOR $100.00 HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE!!

I had the problem of hard shifting @ 60000 miles and sent it to the dealer for the fix. They replaced some solenoids in the tranny and it worked like a dream until 75000 miles when it broke again

Durango XLT

The transmission is not shifting to higher gear. It is a pain because last year we had it serviced and again this year, now this problem.

I KNOW THERE ARE MORE CASES OUT THERE, PEOPLE JUST ACCEPT THESE PROBLEMS AND PAY FOR THEM.
