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

Jul 182010


  • 103,400 miles


The front suspension is having multiple problems, my 02 Durango has been through 2 previous cv joints on the driver's side and 1 previous on the passenger side, and now both have failed once again. Driver's side front hub assembly/bearing has gone bad for 2nd time, also the upper & lower ball joints have gone bad for the 2nd time each. I need 2 new lower back bumpers for the upper control arm (both front). My vehicle now has 103K miles. At approximately 60K miles the front propeller shaft went bad and once replaced, it somehow put a hole in the Y - pipe for the exhaust, and that must be replaced as well, I was told the new/aftermarket shaft were slightly larger to accommodate the power, thus which took the space. All of this will be quite expensive. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
