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.

Dodge, Durango: The brake do not have to be applied to place vehicle into gear or switch gear positions. There is similar to a recall. But this is Chrysler town and country but not Durango. No repairs or corrections at this time. Has not been to a dealer or repair service at this time. Has not contacted daimler/Chrysler. Consumer wanted to file complaint because vehicle was not included in the recall.

When the gear shift lever is put all the way into the park positioning, sometimes vehicle will not indicate it is in any gear at all, there is a square which surrounds the park, drive, neutral etc. On the gear indicator, and none of them will be outlined, in addition to sometimes not indicating the vehicle is in gear, it can be in a different gear than indicated, vehicle has been in repair shop 3 times and has been told that this happens, and there is no repair for the problem.

Gear shift indicator doesn't indicate what gear vehicle is in. Will put vehicle in park with indicator staying in park. Consumer states gear shift may not indicate any gear at all.
