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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

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.

Told dealership it was pulling to the left but they could never schedule a time to fix it. Finally took it to a different Dodge dealer and they said that there was no way to fix the back alignment. They said that Dodge had incorrectly put it together and there is no way to fix it! they told me I shouldn't drive my brand new car because it's probably not safe with the angle in which the wheels are!

Avenger 6-cyl

  • 9,000 miles
I purchased my car (SXT V6) 5/2013 from joe cecconi's in niagara falls, NY.. I've previously owned a 2008 Avenger with the 4 cyl. Engine and I am a driving enthusiast. I felt the car shifting roughly and I decided to take the car in to the dealership on 10/12/2013 because I was also having a problem with the car pulling hard to the left. The techs assured me that the car was only "learning how I drive" and I explained that my 2008 did the same thing. For the pulling, they did an alignment. When I picked the car up, I drove it and it was about 2 weeks (10/31/2013) before I was able to take it back in due to the same issues; pulling, shaking and a hard shifting transmission. The tech once again told me that there was nothing wrong with the transmission and that my car was way off alignment...even though it was recently serviced. Around 12/5/2013, I took the car back once again and I spoke to a tech around 6pm and he told me that Chrysler uses "snowmobile type transmissions" and that they will always shift roughly, he explained that there was no fix. I was told that they could not service my car at that time of day. On 12/11/2013 they did a wheel rotation and an alignment, the car stopped pulling for several months, pulling is very slight now, possibly due to needing another alignment now. I have an issue where I will also be traveling in what should be third gear shifting to fourth (attempting to pick up speed quickly, usually thruways) and there are times that the car will not pick up speed quickly, as if it was sitting in sixth gear rather than third or fourth. This issue is not always present and I have decided to drive the car with the auto stick since there is no failure in shifting this way. The rough-shifting transmission is something that Chrysler has known about in the Dodge Avengers for a long time but they seem to disregard their Avenger owners.

The contact owns a 2013 Dodge Avenger. The contact stated that the tire monitoring system failed. The tire low pressure warning light was illuminated constantly. The vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times and the dealer advised that there was nothing wrong with the tire monitoring system. In addition, the check engine warning light recently illuminated. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where a diagnostic was performed which located the failure at the electronic control module. The contact was also advised that the evap canister was fractured. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 8 and the current mileage was 2,540. Updated 5/15/14 the consumer stated the vehicle would pull to the side, jerk, drive rough/ loud, and had a difficult time gaining speed. The vehicle had a bad odor (comparable to rotten eggs), and the rpms rise to 4,5, or 6. the rotors, brakes, calipers were replaced. The dealer advised the tire pressure fluctuates in very cold/hot weather cause the tire pressure light to illuminate, this is normal. The consumer stated this is false that is not the only time the tire pressure light illuminated. Updated 05/27/2014
