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.

Takata recall- I have contacted all Dodge dealerships in my area for repair, and no one will return my calls to help rectify the recall. I have left voicemails and been re-routed to automated systems for over 3 months.

The vehicle air bag light keeps coming on and throwing a code so the vehicle can not get an inspection sticker. The code is for the clock spring with electronic stabiltiy control. This part is not available and is back ordered per the dealer. Called Dodge and got a lot of I don't know with no resolution. This part is a $900 part you would think they would have an answer as to when it would be available. They should supply an extended waranty on this part seeing as every Durango seems to have this problem. No airbag would deploy without this part.

Going West on hwy 20 blew left front tire took me into a tree. Hit it just left of center broke front bumper in half, pushed frontend into engine block. It was repaired. I had cruise control on doing 65 and driving at night around 9pm. I do not remember hitting the tree and was not injured accept for the memory of it. The body shop told me they would not deploy due to the placement of the sensors. In doing research on this people have T-boned another car at speeds well above the 25 mph Dodge says it takes to have airbags deploy, and there's did not go off. Really. How do we hold the automakers liable for something like this. Class actions only get the lawyers rich.
