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

Sep 232003

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Left rear leaf spring broke at 35mph after hitting minor chuckhole. Upon impact with chuckhole, I heard loud pop and noise under vehicle. Again I stress that this was a very minor chuckhole. The leaf spring could have been defective in some manor.
