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.

While driving, my vehicle is switching into 4-lock on its own. The light comes on and all wheels start turning together. Has one time made it so it wouldn't move. Had to turn off and restart vehicle. Has happened when I was driving slowly on city street. Happened another time, 4-lock lights flashing and moaning sound of tires moving at same time. Did shut off on its own.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango limited with a 5.7 hemi engine. My issues is with the esp (traction control). The esp light is coming on and the esp is engaging when making turns (left & right). It also feels extremely lose at speeds over 45 mph. When on the freeway it feels like I am driving on ice and if I hit a bump, it kicks the vehicle to the left or right, sometimes close to going into the adjacent lane. When I try to correct this act by steering back into the lane, the esp is engaging. When the esp engages it cause the wheel its engaging on to start braking. It is very scary when going 65-70 mph, with lose steering and one side of your vehicle begins to brake. I feel very unsafe driving with my kids in the truck. Now this is confusing since it says in the handbook that the esp is always on and to turn it off you have to push the button on the center console which inturn will display the light on the dash. I have to push the button and have it turned of at all times so that the vehicle drives in a manageable way. I have looked online and noticed several complaints regarding the esp engaging on turns for no reason. It happens at speeds of 5pmh, 20mph and all the way up to 75mph. I sent the vehicle into the dealership, they kept it for a week and a half and returned it saying that they couldn't fix it and were not exactly sure why its doing it. I have already contacted an attorney for the behavior of the management and their unwillingness to correct the issues even though I have a warranty and they sold the vehicle to me like this 3 months ago. I would appreciate if this issue could be looked into, thank you worried Dodge owner.
