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.

There was no accident, but I had to have all four rotors replaced at the same time, then came the loud clunk in the front end of car, took it in to have it checked out, they said it was the tie rods, so they were replaced, not long after that another rattle from front end started, took it in again, they said it was the sway bars, so they replaced them, and about a week later the clunk was back, same clunk as the first one. This wasn't making the clunk until they G replaced the sway bars. I took it back to the dealer, now they are telling me the upper ball joints are bad, so here goes another 3 or 4 hundred dollars. This shouldn't be going out in this car. Could you please tell me why?

I have a 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T with a serious brake defect at only 15,000 miles. I am one of many who have had to replace the front rotors on my vehicle due to severe warpage. I was aware of this problem from other owners and I've done my best to "baby" the brakes to avoid this problem from happening, yet it happened anyway. In my opinion, it is obvious that the front brake rotors provided on this car are inferior and not capable of stopping the car under normal driving conditions for an extended period of time (past the 12,000 mile warranty coverage). As a result, my car is unsafe to drive due to the uncontrollable vibrations at highway speeds and extensive time/distance needed to stop the vehicle. This seems not to be the case with the srt model which uses thicker rotors. I implore your organization investigate this serious safety defect in the SE and R/T Dodge Challenger models asap. Thank you very much.

This is 4th or 5th time this issue has happened, have brought it to the dealer and they have come up with nothing. There are several complaints on NHTSA about this issue, as well as thousands online, yet the dealer states they are unaware of the issue. Normal driving conditions, slowing down to make a turn and the vehicle completely shuts off and I lose power steering and power braking. The car becomes very hard to maneuver and stop. The car was stopped in an intersection, and thankfully the approaching cars were far enough away to slow down and stop. I then put the car in park and start it up and drive off with no other issues. This intermittent stalling is becoming a very dangerous issue and should be looked into further before someone is seriously injured, if they haven't been already.
