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.

problem #1

Mar 142015

Durango 4WD 8-cyl

  • 106,185 miles
Vehicle started to run very rough just after exiting the highway, warning lights came on, and almost immediately, the brakes became sluggish. Car was pulled into a parking spot just before it completely died. Attempts to restart the vehicle were unsuccessful. Mechanic inspection found that the vehicle overheated and caused the vehicle to lose power and brakes. The engine was damaged as well as the radiator, which split from overheating. Noise was found coming from the timing chains as well as the rocker arms. At least two cylinders had low compression. It was determined that the engine and radiator were damage to the point of needing replacement.
