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.

2009 Dodge Caliber Owner Comments

1. 2009 Dodge Caliber SXT, while driving, the electric door locks will unlock and then lock themselves. This happens at any speed, in town or on freeways. Dealer has had car 7 different times, and is unable to repair or even see the fault, although he has on different occasions found fault codes for stuck door lock switch. Dealer currently has car to try to determine the faults. Main door lock switch (drivers side) replaced by dealer. Wiring harness repaired by dealer due to dealer installed after market alarm system incorrectly installed. Dealer has replaced the instrument cluster. Problem is still there - I am concerned for my wife's safety, as she drives home from work after dark, and on occasion, she is unable to electrically re-lock the doors - even to the extent of having to pull over, manually push all door locks down, only to have them pop up again before she gets home.
