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. Notes: I hope I can stop you from buying this vehicle before you find out that it won't be able to stop you.

2010 Dodge Journey Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 282010

Journey 6-cyl

  • 2,760 miles


I am sending via U.S. mail a copy of letter and service department record for problem with cruise control on my a 2010 Dodge Journey that I purchased three months ago. At this time according to the dealer there is "no fix" for this problem and I am concerned that the malfunction could lead to injury to myself or others. A detailed letter is in the mail and should arrive at your facility later this week. There was a problem with the cruise control while driving down an incline. The transmission would downshift and the engine revved with the RPM's rising to 2500-4000 and would probably go higher if the consumer did not disengage the cruise control and step on the brake to get the RPM's down and the engine under control. The vehicle sounded as though it was in neutral. The consumer was advised to not use the cruise control on hilly areas. Updated 04/12/10.
