Hey guys, I have read all the TSB's and stuff, but to be honest with you, most of it looks German to me, pretty sad coming from a mechanic's son. I was hoping the guys that are technically savvy could point me in the direction of the TSB's that I should have them peform while my Nitro is in the shop. I have the R/T and have the shifting issue, plus I have had the stalling issue. Those are the only two issues I have had so far. Any help is appreciated.

Most dealer's will do any TSB's available for your VIN upon doing any service.

Actually, from reading the messages in here, it sounds like most dealers are only addressing TSBs that correlate with a problem the owner is reporting. Several times it's been said to go in and tell the dealer that your experiencing the 35 - 45 mph vibration, or the shifting problem. Then only those TSBs will be addressed.
The exception to that is the ABS TSB, which only effected a certain number of vehicles.

My dealer said that unless you are having the specific problems that the TSB's may cause problems.
Something doesn't sound right about that....

That's like saying, unless your computer gets hacked, you shouldn't do the security updates.

The TSB's should be for firmware hickups, which should be equal in all like models, If only select few are having a said problem, that sounds more like QC, than a firmware issue.

but what do I know...

I have no clue how to build cars. But I read a piece about how Toyota does it. They don't look at improving the car, but improving the process of building cars......... the end result is a better process & a better car.

Maybe, just maybe Dodge is trying to improve the process....... and getting a better Nitro as a result.

Just an update. Picked up the Nitro on Friday and it appears the shifting problem is fixed. Not sure about the stalling issue, I will probably have to wait until the Winter for that, since it usually only happened on cold days. Very happy with my delarship and their willingness to do the flash update. And thanks to you guys for posting the TSB's.
