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 #2

May 042007

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles


Front left brake caliper locked during rush hour leaving Washington, DC on a Friday evening. The Durango had 79,000 miles on it. The vehicle was purchased from a dealer's lot in August 2006. All maintenance has been kept up on the vehicle. We had to replace both calipers in the front. Also, replace both brake pads and shoes. The brake shoes were brand new. They were placed on the Durango a month prior.
