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.

1. normal driving on city streets and highways. 2. ball joints and control arms wear within months of repair. Right side control arm broke and caused car to veer violently to the left with limited to no control of the vehicle by driver. Also significant damage to right side tire. 3. vehicle had needed both control arms and ball joints repaired (again) due to vehicle upgrades by Dodge if one control arm is damage both control arms on vehicle must be replace along with tires which are usually damaged, causing the owner additional and unexpected costs.

Upon arriving for my scheduled oil change and tire exchange from snows to summer, I was informed that my tie rod ends on both front wheels needed to be replaced as they were not safe to drive on. So I instructed them to go ahead and fix it as I needed to be able to drive the vehicle and safety is the most important issue when you Transport your child on a regular basis (as well as myself). I didn't realize at that time this was something that is covered under warranty or I would have gone to a DaimlerChrysler/Dodge dealer to get it fixed. It is unacceptable for a car with 33,000 miles to need two new tie rods. This was an emergency repair as I had no previous indication that there was a problem at all. Leaving without getting the vehicle repaired was not an option as I am not willing to put mine or my daughter's safety in jeopardy as she was with me at the time of the appointment. I am aware of the damage to the car that can be caused when a tie rod (or both) fails and didn't think twice about going ahead with the repairs. Upon speaking with a representative after the fact to get a reimbursement (following the instructions in the back of the owners manual regarding emergency repairs not done at a dealer), DaimlerChrysler stated they would only replace the parts. This is not good enough as I did not have any other option. I do not feel I should have to pay for something, which would have otherwise been fully covered under the warranty by going to a DaimlerChrysler dealer, especially being a safety issue. Had the tie rods indeed broken while driving the vehicle, not only would it have incurred enormous amounts of damage it would have been extremely unsafe for myself and my 6 year old daughter. Research over the internet has since indicated this is a chronic problem with DaimlerChrysler vehicles and this is not a repair I should have to pay for.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Charger. When she applied the brakes there was a very loud noise in the front of the vehicle. The brakes are functioning normally. The dealer stated that the front end was out of line. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure continued to occur. The dealer later stated that tires caused the failure; however, a tire facility confirmed that the tires were not related to the failure. The dealer was unable to repair or successfully diagnose the failure. A second dealer stated that the ball bearings could be related to the failure. The contact stated that the failure is a manufacturers defect. The failure mileage was 18,000. The current mileage was 37,262.
