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.

I went to drive my 2007 Dodge Charger and it was stuck in park. No other problems. I investigated and found out that Chrysler has a defective part in these cars. They want to charge the consumer to fix the problem although it is well known that it is a manufacturing problem. (its a cheap plastic pink release button that goes out at any given time causing the car to be stuck in park) this is not the consumer's problem this needs to be recalled instead I was told since I was the second owner of the car there is nothing they can really do. It costs roughly $500 to be fixed. Really makes a happy customer question the quality of their service.
