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.

problem #1

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,599 miles
I have a 2001 Dodge Durango that had the upper control arm and lower ball joints wore out prematurely. The vehicle has 50599 miles. Took the vehicle in to repair the A/C blower. The dealer called to tell me during the test drive, they heard popping noises in the front end. They checked the ball joints and control arms and found them to be out of tolerance and needed to be replaced. Question why the took a "test drive" to check the A/C blower. I suspect they knew there was a problem with the ball joints and control arms on this model and wanted to have it corrected.
