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.

2003 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 202008

Durango SLT 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,648 miles


Daily key or the "new" 2nd key act the same...not turning when plunged into the ignition switch. Banging of the wheel, hitting the brake, slipping the key in and out, applying silicone spray, and calling the garage doesn't help. However the dealer service department admits to a common problem of faulty key switches on the Durango. Leave it for the day (@ about $75/hr) and an experienced technician will be electronically scheduled to review the fault. I remember the last problem - a blown radiator hose took a five hour wait for such expertise...and an engine mess they agreed to clean. No thanks, I'll take my chances on snipping some wires.
