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 tire pressure sensor broke on my Dodge Caliber. The dealership wants to charge me close to $200 for this. I think its ridiculous for how poorly they were made. This item should be recalled with all the discussions online about them.

Caliber 4-cyl

Front left tire pressure dropped to 25 psi in early December 2010. Car is equipped with factory tire pressure monitoring system which provides numeric pressure for all 4 tires plus an amber warning light if pressure drops below safe levels. Assumed pressure drop was due to low air temperature - approx. 20 degf. Added air to all 4 tires the next day, front left was found to be 25 psi confirmed with a hand-held mechanical gauge, remaining 3 tires were 30-31 psi. Filled all tires to 32-33 psi (factory placard specifies 32 psi cold) over the course of 2 days the front left tire pressure again dropped. Tpm showed 28 psi at front left tire, 32-33 psi in remaining tires. Refilled front left to 34 psi. Removed front left tire and inspected for leaks using soapy water. No leaks found. Reinstalled front left tire. Over 2 weeks, pressure dropped to low 20's psi on front left tire. Refilled to 34-35 psi each time. After the final refill, pressure dropped to 19 psi over a 12 hour period. Drove car to service station and valve stem snapped near the base of the threads while adding air. Resulted in immediate tire deflation. Center check valve came out with it. Will retain all pieces for inspection upon request, plus plastic valve stem cap. All parts are oem. Valve stem is part of the tire pressure monitor sensor assembly which is a common part for most Jeep Dodge Chrysler vehicles. Have read numerous complaints about this same failure. Suspected root cause was using metallic valve caps that could cause corrosion, however, suspect valve cap on my car is plastic as shipped from the factory.
