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.

problem #1

Have had nothing but problems since we purchased it. Have replaced the transmission 5 times and going on the 6th, fuel pump 3 times, steering twice, ignition 3 times. I am now disabled and don't have the money to replace the transmission again nor do I have the money to replace the vehicle. Sure wish there was something that could be done. Oh also the dealership that I purchased the vehicle from, I found out recently did not report all the work done on this vehicle to Chysler whice makes it more difficult to rectify the problem.
