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.

Called dealer 1 month after purchase complaining of brake noise. Have replaced brakes 6 times in less than 40,000. Dealer refuses to fix. Took to outside shop, had to replace for 7th time. We can not sell vehicle, and worry about son driving.want car replaced, dealer won't budge.

A loud sound coming from front left and right wheels whenever you increase speed, I have had to replace all four of my tires twice, and still having the problem of the tires going flat. The brakes pulsate whenever coming to a stop and they constantly squeal. I have went to the mechanics for all of this listed complaints and no one was able to fix the problem. My brakes pulsating was said to be attributed to the kind of brakes that Chrysler puts on there vehicles a semi metallic type. My front wheels feel as though they are about to fly off. I am afraid to drive this vehicle.

Side molding fell off on the freeway. Brakes vibrated. Dealer said it was normal wear. Rims have bent several times. Front end was very low to the ground. Engine died becuase serpentine time belt came off, causing engine to cease. Dealer tried to repair problem, but it still squealed. Dealer couldn't remedy the problem.
