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.

problem #1

Caliber 4-cyl

  • 35,950 miles
I had been driving for a few hours at approximate 65 mph. Some of which was on cruise. All of a sudden my vehicle started slowing down. My speedometer said 60 mph. However, I was probably at 30. I stepped on the gas and the RPM went high but I didn't get any speed. Basically, the speedometer wasn't recording the speed I was at and the transmission was not working in increasing speed. I had it towed back to phoenix and the Dodge dealership in mesa, AZ checked it over and told me that there was a "fluke" with the ctv transmission in this model and they had been seeing a lot of this as people were driving from phoenix to flagstaff which is a gradual increase over a number of miles and people were having the same issues that I did. I was told the cvt transmission goes into "limp" mode when this happens and basically shuts down. I was also led to believe they could do nothing about it. I'm surprised there isn't a recall on this model and transmission. When I goggled 2010 Dodge Caliber transmission problems, I came up with a utube video documenting exactly what I had experienced.
