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.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
40,000 miles and the ball joints are completely worn out. Also had to put a new steering rack on. Ball joints make popping sound and steering is jumpy causing the vehicle to veer in unpredictable directions. Chrysler won't stand behind and wants $$$ to fix. Doesn't seem that ball joints should wear so quickly.

Lost control of 2001 Dodge Durango on broken arrow expressway between harvard and lewis, heading West there has been several times that this has happened, not all at the same location. I feel there is a problem with my Dodge, and the road at this location is extremely bad. I called the highway dept. Left a message but never heard back.
