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.

There are several recalls on 2006 Dodge Durango but my VIN # does not show up for any recalls.

I would also like for the other recalls to be checked as well. I have taken truck back to dealer two times and have gotten no results, but I'm still having encountering the problems. On 12/3/07 I called 1-800 # and was told they would get back to me. Haven't heard from them.

My 2006 Dodge Durango may not stop correctly at one specific intersection. The Durango travels to the intersection to take kids to school or pick up from school. The route is traveled almost daily since January 3, 2007. On five occasions, the brakes did not function correctly. The road conditions are dry. The speed leading up to the intersection is 35 mph or less. The force pressed on the brakes is moderate for a simple, controlled stop at an intersection. Instead of stopping normally, we hear the noise of a small motor. The brakes don't feel right and the car doesn't stop quickly. Then, the brakes appear to fail and the car proceeds forward with no brake resistance. The reaction of the driver is to release the brakes and then press very hard. The car does stop with a jerk. After 3800 miles, the behavior only happens at the one intersection. The last three occurrences happened on the same day. We cannot duplicate the problem on demand at the intersection or on any other road. With dry road conditions, the car stops just fine with moderate or even heavy brake pressure. On an asphalt road with loose gravel, I applied heavy pressure to the brakes. I heard a motor; the brakes felt weird; the brakes never gave up; the car stopped quickly as expected. Something is wrong with my car. We, the drivers, are too afraid to see what happens if we don't release the brakes. In each occurrence, failure of the brakes would have resulted in an accident. The first, unexpected occurrence almost did. The dealership will not attempt any action on my car since they cannot duplicate the problem at the intersection or anywhere else.
