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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The first year of the new Dodge Dart had a rough start, with owners reporting a disproportionate number of engine and transmission problems.

For transmission, the main complaints are transmission failure & rough shifting. So far, average mileage for transmission failure is 25,000 miles. Not good.

For engine problems, it usually starts with the engine light coming on for any number of reasons: bad sensors, ignition coil replacement, bad wiring, faulty gas cap ... dealers are replacing various components with varying degrees of success, or telling owners they can't duplicate the issue.

My vehicle was parked in my driveway from Feb. 21, 2013 from 11:30 am to approximately 4:00 pm when it rolled down the driveway hit a tree and stopped in the middle of the street. The car was parked in first gear and the parking brake was engaged. The driveway has an approximately 20% slope at the location the car was parked. The second incident took place on May 2, 2013 approximately 1:00 pm. The vehicle had been parked in the same location for three weeks as I was out of town. It was once again parked in first gear, with the parking brake engaged. As I approached the vehicle it began to roll down the slope it was parked on. I have witnesses for both incidents. Chrysler has inspected the vehicle twice and reports there is nothing wrong with the brakes or transmission.

One month old Dodge Dart rallye was parked on a steep driveway the morning of 01/20/13. The emergency brake was engaged and the dashboard light for the 'parking brake engaged' was lit. The car sat idle for about a minute and was also idle after getting out of the car for >30 seconds. At that point the car started to roll backwards down the driveway where it crashed into a wooded area striking several trees. The parking brake handle was still up and appeared to be engaged. The damage to the car was estimated at $2400.
