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.

Rotors broke and had to be replaced along with pads at a cost of $453. Rocker panels under both doors rusted out at the seams, Chrysler would not fix, I was told it was a factory flaw not covered under warranty.

The front rotors are so thin when installed on new car that when you need to replace the pads, the rotors are too thin to turn so they must be replaced also. This turns a $99 repair into a $350 one.

After driving car and leaving it parked for 2 days; when going to start it again, the horn didn't work properly (really weak!), and it wouldn't start until several attempts and giving it gas. Also......the rear right side window defrost (wire harness that is soldered to window) popped off the window without reason. When repaired at dealership, the guy said it was the 3rd one he had fixed recently and it was always on the same side of the vehicle. This could cause window to fog up. Also approximately Jan of 2005 I went in to a dealership because a strange noise was coming from my rear left suspension/wheel. It made squealing/grinding noise when turning or over bumps. They couldn't find the problem......suggested to get rotor turned.....maybe it did help!

Vehicle was purchased used with 18,455 miles on it. After vehicle was purchased we noticed a grinding noise with the brakes. We took the vehicle into the dealership and had the rotors replaced because they were warped. The vehicle continued to have the grinding sound, we brought the vehicle back to the dealership and again work was done on the brakes. We did not have opportunity to drive it much after as our daughter got into a car accident with this vehicle on Oct 13, 2005, she was pulling out of the elementary school parking lot (no more than 5-10 mph) to go across the road to enter the high school and another vehicle hit her front corner passenger side (other vehicle was going approx 40-45 mph). The real issue is that both front airbags did not deploy until several minutes after the accident occurred...that is what caused the majority of the injuries to my children.

Consumer took vehicle to the dealer on numerous occasions, there was a noise in the brakes caused by the rotors which were chipped and scratched.
