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 have found an excellent and informative website against dailmler Chrysler at www.daimlerchryslervehicleproblems.com for anyone who would like more information mainly in regard to Intrepid, 300M, concorde, lhs premature engine, steering, transmission and other common failures. I have experienced many of these problems myself and dailmer Chrysler simply does not care, I could have even been killed in one instance. After owning another vehicle and putting nearly 30,000 miles on it I have not had any of the ridiculous problems experienced with Chrysler's Dodge brand of vehicles. There is a lot of information consumers need to know that dailmer Chrysler does not want you to know about these vehicles and their common problems Chrysler ignores, some of which are potential safety concerns such as the defective seat belt design Chrysler continues to use and defective steering design and or components that can cause sudden looseness or change of response in steering, which can lead to a serious accident. These guys have been receiving complaints daily about these problems and have been referring consumers to the NHTSA, I hope that in turn the NHTSA will add this to the list of their complaints so others will also know about this. Thank you very much for your time.

The brakes cause a very noticeable shimmy when applied at any speed that can be felt through the steering wheel/brake pedal, and many times, the entire car shakes. This problem is prevelant when slowing the vehicle on down hill slopes.
