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.

Avenger 4-cyl

I bought this vehicle on 11-04-2015. After just one day the check engine light came on & obd2 scan revealed air leak in fuel system. New gas cap installed & check engine light continues to stay on. I plan to get the vehicle checked out by Dodge dealership if this issue continues. I would also like to know if there is any way to come back & edit this comment if problem is resolved. Thank you.

The contact owns a 2013 Dodge Avenger. While driving approximately 55-60 mph, the vehicle hesitated as if it were going to stall and the electrical system warning indicator and the check engine light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, where it was determined that the failure was directly related to NHTSA campaign number: 3V043000 (fuel system, gasoline); however, the VIN was not included in the recall. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was approximate 60,000.
