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.

Ok, where do I start..Hmmm. Well, Wife saw this slightly used car on the Chrysler lot and HAD to have it. I'm a carefree kinda guy so I didn't care. Therein lies my first problem. No major problems, however, for couple of years while making payments so everything's wonderful. It wasn't until the last 12 months of payments did the problems start. Overheating seemed to be a common occurrence. Had it towed to local shop. They said it was radiator. No problem. Had new one installed. Perfect...I thought. Overheated shortly thereafter. Towed back to local shop. Ok, now it's the water pump.. No problem, right? Had it changed! Wonderful! Not so fast, partner! Still overheated. Had others change thermostat repeatedly, check and change hoses, etc. Even had the father of my wife's sister's boyfriend do a pressure test to see if the heads were cracked. He said they weren't. And apparently the goofs who fixed water pump didn't seal it right or something...so he fixed that. Great, right? Wrong! Still overheated! Took it to Chrysler dealership to have them check it out, figuring they would certainly know what's wrong with it, I mean, they sell 'em and fix em. They told us that it was the radiator. Radiator? It was just changed! And they wanted $750 to change it!! Nope!! Had it towed back to local shop and they were clueless!! So during this 8 month ordeal, we payed the car off and it's still sitting in the driveway. So recently towed it to a highly recommended shop and finally found out that the head IS cracked...and now we're just waiting to see if this horse is worthy of one last race or should we just take it out to the pasture and just shoot the damn thing!
