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.

The trunk lid holds water, so when you open the trunk it leaks water every where. Now my trunk smells like mildew, which my kids and grandkids have to breath in when in the back seat. You can also smell it in the front seats too.

The interior cloth headliner is coming unglued and is beginning to hang down across the rear window. Not able to see all objects clearly in the rear view mirror due to this problem. This is a real safety issue. Never seen a vehicle less than 10 years old do this before. Very poor design.

Takata recall the transmission gear selector is stuck in neutral. Gears when our shift into drive or park the dashboard. The gears will not shift into drive but the car will turn on. By reading other complaints it's been a happen thing with Dodge Avengers 2010 automobiles it need to be on recall for the transmission gear selector.

I want to know why your website claims there are 2 open recalls on this vehicle, and the Chrysler database claims none.
