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.

2013 Dodge Avenger Owner Comments

From date of purchase brand new off the lot 2013 Dodge Avenger 3.6L blacktop edition. Within a few days I started noticing the car would pull to the right. I took it back to the dealership to have the alignment looked at and fixed and they said they re aligned everything and should be fine. After a week I noticed it started to pull to the right again. At that point I took it into a different shop where they actually told me that they can't re align the car based on the fact that how the cars suspension was manufactured and design is faulty to where the alignment will never be able to be corrected and there's nothing they can do. I am military and have moved 2 times since the purchase and have takin the car to several shops and have been told the same. That the alignment is as best as it can get and will always pull to the right based on the design and how it came from the factory. I've had the car for 3 yrs now and have had to buy brand new tires every year while rotating and balancing my tires every 3 months. This is a serious defect and Dodge will not take ownership of the fault and has not provided any help in coming up with a solution to fix the suspensions alignment always being off.

Car began making creaking noises. Took car to dealership and was told that the inner tie rods were bad and would need to be replaced. Was also told that this was the third car of similar make and model that day with the same issue. Car under extended warranty so they will fix it once I pay the deductible.

The contact owns a 2013 Dodge Avenger. The contact stated that while he drove at various speeds, the front end made a loud noise when a bump was hit. The vehicle was taken to the dealer several times for the failure. The dealer replaced the rack and pinion along with the tie rod but the failure was not corrected. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 17,000 and the current mileage 37,600.
