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.

2002 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

My 2002 Durango has developed problem where gear shift lever is sticking in park at initial startup. Will free up after several minutes delay or if brake pedal is pumped 3-4 times. Will not repeat unless engine is off several hours. Regular daily occurrence past 4 weeks. Current mileage is 100,010 miles. At first thought shift linkage freezing in winter weather but now have had problem on days with extended hours of temps well above freezing. No dealer contact yet.

Multiple problems with 2002 Dodge Durango. Power locks intermittently lock and unlock without activating them. Bad creaking noise from front suspension, possible ball joint problems. Check engine light goes on and off intermittently. Brakes really soft, horrible stopping distance. Engine runs really rough in morning for first 10-15 minutes. Only 21000 miles.

During a rain storm, while my husband was driving, the locks would lock and unlock for no particular reason. He even got locked out and our child locked inside.
