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.

I have had my Dodge for three years and since then several things had to be replaced on it. I had to have my transmission rebuilt due to the coolant failure. The sensor stopped working and over heated the engine burnt up the transmission. The motor in the driver window burnt out and had to E replaced. The Dodge stop cranking so we had to replace the fuel pump. We are now having problems with the cooling fan on the engine that has burnt out as well. I am very displeased with my truck and will never buy another Dodge again. All these things happened in a year. Man I hate this truck.

Windows cables keep breaking in Dodge, 2001 Durango. Have been with Dodge, and the warranty covered the first incident. The cable broke again, and the warranty expired. Dodge will not pay to have the windows fixed. No prior warning to cable breakage.

Consumer stated the window motor on the passenger side has gone out. The window will not go up or down. She stated she could hear the motor making a noise, but nothing happened. This started last week some time. She took the vehicle to the dealer for this problem and was told that they have been having a lot of problems with the window motors on these vehicles.

For the (3) third time since we purchased this vehicle in 05/2002, the window regulator has failed. The window regulator is a big part that fits inside the door and makes the window go up and down. This is the third occasion when it has broken causing the window to slide down into the door. It costs approx. $250-$300 to get this repaired every time. We are not doing anything extraordinary to warrant this kind of defect in this part. Please investigate this problem asap!!!

About 35,000 miles I had the adjusters repaired on the passenger front of vehicle. Around 60,000 miles the adjusters failed and the seat will jerk forward about an inch while doing any acceleration, then slide back about an inch. Somewhere around 70,000 miles the front drivers seat started rocking back and forth, like it was not bolted to the floor boards properly. I have power seats. I took my Durango in to have it looked at, at the dealership. I was told that they have seen a couple of vehicles with this same problem recently, and I was lucky mine would only cost 1,300 dollars to repair. Other bigger vehicles cost more. Is there a recall on this problem, and why is it happening so often in my vehicle, when it should not happen at all. Why so much money? why is a safety factor not part of warranty. I have always had power seats, this is the first time they ever failed. Not once, but twice.
