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.

2014 Dodge Avenger Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 302015


  • 4,789 miles


While traveling on the highway I noticed a pulling/shaking of the vehicle felt as if the car did not want to follow my control. It will also feel as if it wants to attempt to stall or switch gears while driving

I had started car and put in drive. When I pushed on gas the car shut off. It had done two times earlier in the month. I took back to dealer I purchased it from and the mechanic said it was the sensor which kept vehicle running and I was lucky I wasn't going fast because I would have probably had an accident because I wouldn't be able to control it.

problem #1

Apr 012014

Avenger 6-cyl

  • 600 miles
With electronic stability control (ESC) on the 2014 Avenger R/T self steers under heavy acceleration, when lane-changing, and when turning left onto highways. When this happens the car is all over the road. Dodge provides an ESC off switch. With ESC off the car is stable and safe. The dealer is aware of this problem but says they are not allowed to permanently disable the ESC. Their advice is to press the ESC off switch each time the car is started.
