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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The third generation Durango is plagued by a defective TIPM, particularily in the 2011 and 2012 model years.

TIPM, which stands for Totally Integrated Power Modules, is responsible for controlling and distributing power to all the vehicle’s electrical functions. So when your TIPM goes haywire, bad things start happening. Things like your water pump can stop working, your engine can stall out and your airbags can randomly deploy.

Dodge Durango 2011 crew-traction defect. Got the car 12/23/11. On 1/12/12, during snow storm. I left work, car would not stay on the road, slid sideways as I turned. I was on the phone w/co-worker who was behind me. I asked if he saw my car slide, he said yes, it was difficult to keep on the road so told him I had to go.I drove to peoria. I was going very slow. Went to swim meet, then headed home down knoxville ave. Maybe10 mph, very cautious, everyone was passing me. Signal turned yellow, then red, but my car would not stop. Anti-lock brakes were on, car continued to slide. I saw a truck coming a long way down, I slid into cross traffic, and hit that truck. (I had pain in my shoulder, the pain continued, & on 3/30/12, had emergency surgery 4 ruptured cervical spine. I now have a plate, & 4 screws in my neck.)got the car back, & took it to tire shop to put better tires on it. Was told there was nothing wrong w/tires, & they were better tires than they could sell me. This year in less then 1 inch of snow, the car did a 180 slide on my drive, then slid into traffic (level surface), a car missed me by inches. Slide even in a quarter inch snow. Doesn't matter who is driving it, they slide. I again went 2 a different tire place. They wanted to sell me the same tires, I said no way! they offered alternatives. I decided to google what kind of tires would be good for my car. Much to my dismay, apparently none are. What I found, was that there were several '11 Durango owners complaining about the tires on their cars. Same problems, different tires & different tire manufacturers. Their cars will not stay on the road with snow or ice either. It is not the tires, its a the car! please stop this before someone gets killed. I will live the rest of my like with terrible complications from the surgery. I am terrified to drive this car, & going to have to trade it, & take a huge loss.
