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.

2008 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 75,000 miles


While entering another highway from a ramp in cruise control, I attempted to accelerate. The gas pedal went to the floor by itself and the car accelerated at a drastic, unwanted rate. I could not turn the cruise control off using the off button and I slammed on the brakes and held them down and steered off to the side of the road with the engine revving at full speed. I let up on the brakes to see if it would stop, but the car accelerated again and I had to apply the brakes at full force and brought the car to a shuddering stop while holding the brakes down. While the engine was still revving at top speed, I put the car into neutral and only then would the cruise control button shut off. I was able to drive 800 miles with no further incidence by not using the cruise control and I will be taking it to a dealer in my area.
