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

The driver's door on my vehicle is seemingly loose on the frame. While driving, there is a metallic clank from the door when going over certain bumps or dips in the road. I troubleshooted the problem trying to determine what it was, and when I drove with the door ajar I noticed it would shake and shimmy violently in the door frame. I took a folded t-shirt and placed it such that it lays in the bottom of the door frame, partly on the door sill. Now, when I close the door and drive, the noise is gone. The t-shirt acts as a shim to prevent the door from shaking in the door frame. Pretty sad for a 2 year old truck with only 28K miles. The t-shirt solution works, so I haven't bothered to have the dealer work on it. They would probably make the problem worse.
