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.

1998 Dodge Avenger Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 092007


  • 86,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Dodge Avenger. While driving approximately 70 mph on normal road conditions, the engine stalled without warning. He was able to coast onto the emergency lane. The contact was able to restart the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing. The technician was unable to duplicate the failure. In addition, both front tires required three replacements as a result of a defective lower ball joint. Although there was a recall under NHTSA campaign id number 00V421002 (suspension, front control arm, lower ball joint), the dealer stated that the recall repair was previously performed on the vehicle. The manufacturer would not offer additional assistance. The failure mileage was 86,000 and the current mileage was unknown.
