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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

I'm contacting you in regards to my 2005 Dodge Durango. I have encountered it stalling making turns, driving down the street and at lights. I have researched the issue after having a tune up on the vehicle with no success. After researching, I have found that thousands of people are having the same exact issue. I have printed off from several sites the complaints identical to mine. This is definitely a recall for this vehicle and should be replaced by Chrysler/Dodge. I have found that a lot of people are finding that the issue is the egr system. The same thing with the air bag issue that I'm receiving, I'll be driving down the road and get an alert that the passenger air bag was turned off when someone is in the seat. There is two recalls in place now for air bag issues. I really hope that you will investigate this and reach out to Chrysler to get this resolved for consumers.

My airbag light has been illuminating and when I did a recall search an airbag recall did come up but there is no fix" also when I fill the gas tank I get major splash back. Huge fire issue. I know there was a recall on some 2005 Dodge Durangos for that problem but the dealer said my VIN was not included and wouldn't fix it. How can I get my VIN included" another issue is the engine light comes on and reads code P0456(very small emissions leak)..but the emissions system has been gone over and gone over but there is nothing that would indicate a leak.

I am not happy that my VIN number pulls up only one recall when a few of the issues that I am having are on the recall list. For starters the side of my vehicle is flaking paint and not to mention everytime I fuel it, gas spurts all over the vehicle and ground. A major fire hazard especially when my children are in the back 2 seats.
