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 #2

The contact owns a 2001 Dodge Durango. While driving at any speed, the contact noticed excessive heat underneath the floorboard and in the engine. She also smelled sulfur inside the passenger compartment. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that the catalytic converter was failing. The vehicle was not repaired and the failure persists. The contact feels that the computer system in the vehicle is malfunctioning, and causes raw fuel to flow through the cylinders. Over time, this could have caused the catalytic converter to fail. The contact filed a complaint with the manufacturer and was advised to take the vehicle to the dealer for further inspection. She was provided a list of dealers to call that has special equipment to remedy the failure. When she arrived at the dealer, the equipment was unavailable for testing. The failure mileage was 72,000 and current mileage was 83,267.

Transmission failure after 6 years. My transmission temperature light came on and I was not able to accelerate over 5-10 mph. I was told by the dealer that my warranty had expired and it was over the mileage. However, I would have to pay $6,000 to have everything fixed. These were the issues: - transmission re-haul ($4,150) - catalytic converter ($1,100) - differential service ($500) this is absolutely ridiculous to pay $6,000 for transmission services after 6 years old.
