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. Notes: The second generation Durango was introduced in 2004 and instantly came under fire for, well, catching on fire.

From 2004-2006 electrical overloading in the driver's side instrument panel caused numerous reports of interior fires. The interior infernos became so commonplace that Chrysler eventually issued a recall.

The problems didn't stop there, however. Owners of the recalled vehicles complained about being treated unfairly and given take-it-or-leave-it low ball settlement offers. "They offered me $2000 under NADA retail as a settlement," said one owner, "and have been rude and hostile to deal with." Nothing says awesome service like treating your customers rudely after their cars have already caught on fire.

2005 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 152006

Durango 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,500 miles


I took my SUV in for service as it was not running smoothly and had trouble changing gears.Dodge made alterations and returned it.shortly after that it stalled out while driving & the check engine light came on. The reading indicated problems with the 02 sensor. After hesitation, Dodge replaced my O2 sensor and said the stall out was not related to the check engine light coming on, it didn't stall when they drove it, so they did not consider it a problem. Days later it stalled out & the check engine light came on again. When I returned the truck to Dodge, they got back the same read as before and said it needed a software update.a week later the check engine light came on then the truck stalled out during operation.I took it back to Dodge, they contacted DaimlerChrysler who had them check the exhaust for leaks.a pinhole leak was found and sealed & they reset the check engine light.after about 200 miles, the check engine light reappeared, the next day it stalled out again.they did more testing for exhaust leaks, said they found another pinhole leak and sealed the entire exhaust.once again, after a couple days of driving, it stalled out in motion, 2 days later, it stalled out again, then finally the check engine light came back on.when I returned it to Dodge, the service manager said he would not work on the truck, he would call dahmlerchrysler for them to send a tech out to look at it and he put me in another rental car.two days after that, I got a call from Dodge saying, an unnamed source told them they should rig the lines to block airflow to the fuel line by putting piping inside the existing lines to stop the truck from stalling. Although he said, "but if you tell anyone I told you to do this, I will deny ever telling you to do it!" so Dodge rigged my lines and told me I needed to pick it up as dahmlerchrysler would not approve any more rental for me.this is how they want me to currently drive the vehicle.sounds too dangerous for me, can you please help!!
