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.

The brakes on my 2006 Durango seem to slip at times. I have gone to stop on several occasions, and the brakes seem to take a second to kick in. I have thought before I wasn't going to stop. This is a great concern to me, especially when I have my grandchildren with me. I feel there is something wrong, and I am not safe at times in this car. It isn't everytime, but it happens too often to feel worry free.

2006 Dodge Durango ABS deploys prematurely when braking while elevation of paved road changes preventing vehicle from coming to a complete stop in a timely manner. Experience at intersection where uphill road dead ends into cross road and elevation of cross road is flat.

My ABS light & brake light come on, and my passenger air bag turns off. When this happens, the vehicle becomes difficult to navigate and the back end get tight. This has happened 4 times, and the last time was on a busy highway, and I was lucky to miss causing an accident. We took the vehicle in on 4/18/06 and had all recall work done, and the vehicle still is not working properly. This last instance scared me to the point I do not feel safe driving the vehivle.

I picked up my brand new Dodge Durango on Jan 31st. A short time after, I received a call from my dealer, paramus Dodge, regarding a safety recall for ABS. I was told to schedule an appointment to have the defect corrected. I scheduled an appointment for Monday, February 20th at 10 a.M. after sitting at the dealership for approximately 1 1/2 hours, they informed me that they could not perform the procedure because they did not have the right software that would enable them to correct the condition. It is quite troubling to me that I wasted time on my holiday to have this problem corrected. Additionally, the dealer could not provide me with an estimate of when they will be ready to deal with the problem. Moreover, I cannot believe that Chrysler could have a safety recall and not be ready to deal with the recall. Please let me know when and where this can be resolved. I am losing patience. This is a brand new car.
