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

I am driving 2003 Dodge durago. On 3-12-04, I went to a car wash. I shift the lever to N, and the prndl showed the N position. When the wash done, the dye started, I felt the car was going backward. I did not know what was happening until I hit the car behind me. The car wash mechine stopped, I notice that the prndl was illuminating half of the R, the car was changed to reverse! the similar thing happend before. One time I was driving on the local road(45 mile/hour), in a sudden, I heard strange load noise, then I saw the prndl showing "2" instead of the "D". another time, the gear was changed from "D" to "N" when I was driving.
