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.

2001 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 142004

Durango 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,000 miles


I bought my Dodge Durango in October 2002. I heard a clunking noise & felt like someone hit me from behind when I would stop. Had checked at Pontiac dealership where I bought it, they said there were no problems. I saw cbs news story on Durangos and realized that the ball joints may be the issue with my vehicle, it still makes the same clunking noise, and I still feel the vehicle push forward when I am stopping my vehicle. On February 14th of this year, I was driving and lost my brakes, found out that the cylinders were bad. I will put this down as an incident, but the noise is still ongoing, and so far I haven't had an incident & would like to prevent one.
