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

problem #1

Jan 102005

  • 15,000 miles


At state inspection, I was quite miffed when the dealer told me that I needed new brakes and new rotors on my 2 year old Durango at only 15,000 miles. Not surprised by the need for pads, but to hear that the rotors were "rotted and pitted" beyond repair was a surprise. I have owned many cars, trucks and SUVs in my life, and never had to have new rotors before 75k miles, and never unless the pads were worn down to the point of scoring them. Skeptical, I took it to my own mechanic and got the same news. Needless to say, I would not use Dodge parts to replace, so I let my mechanic do it instead of the dealer.
