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.

2006 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 012011

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • 53,000 miles


Exhaust started ticking and upon investigating found 2 rear manifold bolts broken off allowing exhaust fumes to leak into engine compartment. Talked to Dodge dealer and found it is a very common problem and very expensive to repair.

On my 2006 Dodge Durango, the studs and bolts holding the exhaust manifold together failed. This required the replacement of two gaskets, four double ended studs and two bolts as well as twenty retainers. This vehicle did not have any off road driving and the studs and bolts failed during normal everyday wear and tear, which seems very unusual for a vehicle less than three years old. Is there a possibility that inferior materials were used in these studs and bolts leading to the failure?

I was just wondering if anyone else had problems with both exhaust manifold gaskets failing at 40,000 miles on a 2006 Dodge Durango. Fortunately I had an extended warranty that covered the problem. All other cars that I have had have gone much longer before needing the gaskets replaced.
