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.

2008 Dodge Avenger Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 50,000 miles


My 2008 Dodge Avenger has had numerous problems since we purchased it. We have had to replace the power steerin pump twice, the alternator and today 07/16/2011 I couldn't shift the car from park to reverse. I have also noticed that at 55mph, the rear end of the vehicle fish-tails, and whenever it rains or snows, there's always water in my trunk. All these issues seem to be a problem for many Dodge Avenger consumers and it is an autrocity that these vehicles have not been totally recalled. I highly doubt if I will buy another american manufactured vehicle because I constantly have problems with the american brands.
