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.

2000 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 142009

Durango SLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


the front bumper and lower front fenders near the front bumper - rust out prematurely, the fix is rather simple, but kind of a pain in the butt:

Remove fenders and bumper from the vehicle, I bought a bedliner rhino kit from walmart (50.00) I used 80 grit then 220 grit sandpaper to rough up the surface the inside of the fenders, and the backside of the bumper I then washed them off good - let them dry then I applied the bedliner to the inside of the fenders and the bumper. Now let it dry completely then re-attach the parts to the truck.

This will stop the rust from coming back - at least for about 5-6 years or more.

I plan on doing the same to the rear tail gate, removing the inside panel to get to the metal inside.
