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.

I was driving home and the car bucked like it was going to stall, just then I lost my dashboard lights, car kept running but sluggish. Got home to see if anyone else had this problem and found out that there was a recall for this issue, exactly what had happened to me was described on Chrysler's recall page. So I called Chrysler and they told me it wasn't my model, yet everything I read, even on your page, says 2008 Dodge Avenger and the problems I know have are described to a tee. Any help in this situation would be greatly appreciated as I don't have the money to fix Chrysler's problem. Thank you! recall id #74738 NHTSA campaign id- 08V152000 Chrysler recall no. H07.
