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.

Broken when I first time I saw the car at the dealer. It was fixed for free that day as part of my signing agreement.

problem #1

(reported on)

Avenger BLK V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

dodge is getting as bad as ford with their ignorance of defective parts, and not taking responsibility for their junk cars, the exhaust system sucks and is too expensive to fix, and the drivers side door handle broke a few thousand miles after i bought it. almost every avenger i see has the same problem.ponder this...the dealership wants $20 for a passenger side door handle replacement, but $90 for a driver side door handle, why the difference? you figure it out!
