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 #2

Durango 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Intermittent problems with the door locks -- lock/unlock on their own. It occurs while I am driving the vehicle (at any speed) and also occurs when the car is parked in the driveway (key is not in the ignition). I have been unable to pin point exactly what events trigger this to occur. The dealer had it for 8 days and was unable to reproduce the problem and returned the vehicle to me without any resolution.

problem #1

May 142003

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 800 miles
I purchased a 2003 Dodge Durango slt on April 24,2003. When my vehicle hit 800 miles the locks started locking and unlocking all the time, whether the key was in the ignition or not. It has been brought to the topor Dodge 2 times and the problem was unable to be fixed. It is now back in for the same problem. Only now they just keep unlocking all the time. I have to leave it at topor til the problem is fixed because the doors won't stay locked and is a safety hazard. I work in springfield Massachusetts and it is unsafe to take my own Durango to work. It has been at the dealership since June 3,2003 and I have no idea how long I will be without my brand new Durango. This is a safety defect that I know longer want to deal with. My Durango now has 4200 miles on it and the problem still exists.
