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

Nov 302014


  • miles


The contact owns a 2002 Dodge Durango. While driving 75 mph, the rear driver side tire vibrated, accompanied by a grinding noise and loud sound. The contact exited the vehicle and discovered the whole tire was missing. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the technician diagnosed that the rear axle and drum needed to be replaced. No repairs were made to the vehicle. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was unknown.

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles
I purchased a new Durango 2 years ago, and at present the SUV has slightly over 14,000 miles. The dealer has informed me that the rotors must be turned and new brake pads installed. This type of work at 14,000 miles (7,000 miles per year) is unacceptable. At this rate 30,000 miles will require new pads and rotors. Apparantly, the brakes/rotors are undersized for the size and weight of the vehicle or the pads and/or rotors are defective, both safety issues in my opinion.
