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.

Driving and the power surged, all lights came on, none of my gauges worked and steering felt extremely loose. Have been waiting since last summer to get this fixed L. and now two months since it finally went South and have still been waiting. Wonderful job by the company.

I was backing my car out of the driveway when it suddenly shut down. The Dodge company said there was a recall on the alternator and it needs to replace. After doing the replacement they said my battery was also needed to replaced but because there is a chance that the battery damage was either done by usage or by the alternator they will not replace the battery. The mechanic at Dodge dealer said " through his experience that when a alternator can damage a battery, they will not replace the battery. Through his 14 years experience Dodge will not replace the battery. "

A 35 dollar part has malfunctioned or broken (ac/HVAC blend door actuator). It results in an 800 dollar repair. The vehicle had just passed the 36 month warranty and still has less than 36000 miles to date. If you investigate this problem is widespread among many Dodge owners. It is ridiculous that the quality of said product is so poor considering the cost required to replace it.
