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 #1

Apr 012012

Durango SLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 155,000 miles


It started w/ the overdrive light coming on, then followed by the trans temp light. It wouldn't shift into drive. We had the sensors changed ($500), but that only fixed the problem for about 2 months. It started doing it again, and now it don't want to pull out of it's tracks! When it does decide to take off, you can drive it for about 5 miles, then you have to pull over, shut it off and wait til the trans cools down! I have never owned a vehicle w/ more issues than this stupid durango! I have called every place between Huntington and Cleveland, and everyone tells me the same thing....Good Luck keeping a transmission for a durango! Come on Dodge....Seriously!
