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.

2003 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

When the knuckle fails,or fractures it loosens to steering wheel to a dangerous level in my opinion. It is a recall issues in October of 08, I purchased in February of 08. I never received a recall notice. I called two recall numbers. Sept 23, 2014. The first said it's Vin# specific. An that it wasn't on the list. An acted like I was stupid for asking. She was not helpful at all. Nor did she give a rip.

So I tried another recall number... This time it was on the list but all recalls were done, according to them, were done in 05. Not! Then he proceeded to tell my car is fine! Just a little old. At this point I was understandably upset. It's not fine. Considering the recalls took place after I bought it... And I'm pretty sure I'd know if it was done or not. Is there any help out there? I have been a loyal Dodge owner even through the worst. It seems a shame that that can't stand by me...
