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.

2009 Dodge Durango Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 172009


  • 50,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Durango hybrid. The contact turned the vehicle on and once they put the vehicle into park, the vehicle accelerated. The instructions stated that the vehicle could not be shifted into drive without the brakes being pressed. The brakes were applied and the vehicle continued to accelerate. The contact also was only able to control the steering wheel with minimal ability. The contact was unable to stop the vehicle until it crashed into the garage. The contact spoke with the manufacturer and was told that the vehicle would be inspected by an engineer, but that had not happened when the complaint was filed. The failure and current mileages were 50,000.
