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.

problem #1

May 152007

(reported on)

Durango SLT 4.7

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,914 miles


The problem occured when I was on the freeway. Pressed on the gas pedal to pass a car, The motor went into hyper drive and RPM's jumped to 4,000+. Next thing you noticed the overdrive is no longer working. Now you see how much you are paying in gas. Noticed the RPM levels are .5 higher at every speed. Brought the truck to a transmission specialists and got the Solenoid replaced. $425 for the part 3 hours of work for a total of $800.00Cdn. I got a Guarantee of 6 months. If this happens again. I will be trading the car in. It is bad enough to pay for the gas!!
