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

Avenger ES 2.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


First time it happened when I was at a convention in Mississippi in the summer. Could not understand most of the mechanics I called (tough Cajun accent). They ended up charging me $250 to replace a radiator cap that had nothing to do with the transmission. I now know how to deal with the problem. It is a faulty sensor. The car tries to "protect itself by not letting you drive very fast but still letting you go somewhere for help. It does this about every 2 week (for over 3 years now). The transmissions on these cars are total sh*t anyways.
