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 #3

Aug 012010


  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


RPMs have been slightly surging recently. But on a 100 mile trip, air going full blast, cruising about 75, the surge became so severe, my head snapped back and hit the headrest (no I didn't fall asleep). I babied it the rest of the way home and it only got worse. Has been running ok since. What causes that?

Durango SLT V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 166,000 miles

Engine surges while driving sometimes as much as up 6000 Rpms. While cruise is on or off. While it's idled it does it and if you hit the gas it goes down. No solution while driving. Our mechanic said it had something to do w/ when the air kicks on but it does it when the air is off.
