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

First set replaced at 10 mos old... dealer indicated was unusual... paid under warranty. Same thing happened almost exactly 10 mos after that... exact symptoms... dealer said nothing wrong. 6 wks later, took it back... brakes "shot" per dealer... they would not cover cost... took vehicle elsewhere & never returned to dealer. Since then, I have had brake pads replaced yearly due to squeaking/squealing/rubbing. Rotors replaced this last time. Mechanic is now putting on "lifetime" brakes... which seem to last just as long. Replaced some hydraulic hose that was not releasing pressure correctly, causing brakes to stick & to squeal WHILE driving.... kink in hose.... possibly poor design? And NO I do NOT drive it hard or ride brakes... I had a 2000 durango prior that I loved and NEVER had any brake issues in 3 yrs with that. Mechanic states new Durangos have much larger brake pads now....
