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 Durango had headlight and windshield wiper failure at night in the rain at 60 miles an hour. The central timing module went out. We couldn't see to drive and oncoming drivers couldn't see us. Its was like being blindfolded. You cant navigate the highway without having the ability to see.the NHTSA was notified, and they told me that unless an investigator finds a trend, they cant issue a recall. Upon looking at their website I have found over 100 complaints for this... which to me is a trend. I guess someone has to die before this will be taken seriously. I called the Dodge Corp. Office and they are aware of the issue but until the NHTSA makes them recall, they wont. Shame on Dodge and the NHTSA for not fixing the defect. This is not an inconvenience defect, this is a safety defect. If you have problems with your lights, wipers, electrical system please post complaint so that the NHTSA will finally see a trend. This potentially fatal defect must be recognized! please involve your local media if you get no response with the NHTSA. The time for bailouts to the car company's' is over if they aren't required to manufacture a safe product! the NHTSA said they receive over 500 complaints a day. With that many complaints could they be missing this defect trend? it is time to check into the electrical, transmission, and seat belt issues that Dodge is having. The NHTSA should be doing all they can to avoid innocent deaths from the neglect of greedy car manufacturers. Driving without windshield wipers or headlights=death!

2001 Dodge Durango. In 2007 my front driver's window went 1/2 way down and wouldn't go back up. I had to replace the regulator w/ the motor. At an expense of about $200. The mechanic says this is a huge problem he sees w/ this vehicle. In 2008 the same window is out again and so are my back two windows now. I can hear my front pass. Window doing the same so I have stopped using all windows. This is a costly thing replacing every window once a year. Why cant they make an effective part that if replaced will last. You shouldn't have to do this every year. Please check into this malfunction. I see Dodge Durangos windows taped up all over town. Obviously other's are experiencing this same problem.

The contact owns a 2001 Dodge Durango. The wiring harness that connects to the blower motor resister burned and no longer works. While driving at an unknown speed, the vehicle filled up with smoke and the contact smelled something burning. The wiring harness was replaced twice within two years. The dealer stated that the parts for the heater were unavailable and would possibly remain this way until January 16, 2009. The failure mileage was 133,000.
