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.

Avenger ES 2.5L V6

I just bought a Dodge Avenger ES 2.5 V6 and I love it. Sporty, sexy and roomy. But a week ago the engine died on me at the traffic light. Later died again while driving (50km/h). I checked the OBDC code and I got camshaft/crankshaft sensor no signal. It is not cheap to fix ($800 in parts only) but after some reading it seems that it is a common problem so I don't know what to do. I will see.

Any suggestions would help.
