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 am having trouble with the electronics in the front two windows. The passenger side quit working on the drivers side control then the passenger side switch. Approx. Two weeks later the driver window won't go down but will go up. One of the engine ports on the passenger side is stuck open and I have tried using sea foam. Both front struts went out at the same time a month ago. Replaced the alternator three weeks after buying the car that was three year's ago. It seems to be one thing after another has to get fixed on this car. I have repaired the A/C unit on it twice this summer. Now the powering steering unit is making a noise when the wheel is turned. Wouldn't recommended this car to anyone. Nice looking but falls apart to easy in a short time frame.

I went to roll my driver side window down and it fell off the track down into the door. My mechanic said the motor was broken and repaired it. A year later today my passenger side window did the exact same thing. I wondered if it could possibly be a defect in the factory motor or it is just a coincidence and if all my windows are going to do this eventually.

The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Avenger. When the contact manually locked the passenger side door, both front windows rolled down automatically. The key was not used at all. The failure has only occurred once. The purchase date and failure mileage were unknown. The current mileage was 3,000.
