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 started feeling a pulse in the brakes pedal at just over 20,000 miles. I felt it must be a defective rotor so I contacted the dealer and the Dodge national hotline. They made me bring in the car for inspection, where for $24 they proceeded to tell me after 5 minutes that I have warped and pitted brake rotors. They will not cover them under the 3 year 36K warranty. Instead they tell me that this is normal wear and they want $275 to replace the rotors. I checked the NHTSA site and found 4 out of 36 other complaints were about the same pulsing rotors. I wrote letters to Dodge to no avail. I refuse to pay them to put the same oem junk parts on the car. Bendix or raybesto do not yet sell rotors for this new of a car. The brake system is not 100% safe and I feel that the dealership and Dodge are giving me the run around. What do you suggest I do?

I am not very happy with these problems. Why do I have to keep my horns wrapped in plastic for a year. They say they are redesigning the horns but none have come out yet. When my warranty is out I will be out too. I am writing the manufactor. Today about this problem. It stinks!! also I do not understand how my rotors could be warped. The pads are still in good shape. They only wanted to turn the rotors. I do not trust these guys. I am getting a second opinion wed. Oct. 27 about the rotors. I can see from your site that the drivers side window has given trouble to other owners. I just got the car back again Thursday and the window that they had to remove to put in the new motor is still not set right. When I call them back it willbe my 4th try. Also the theft alarm they fixed this Oct 21, thurs. Was just rigged. I am taking it back and show them the poor work quality. The trunk hangs while opening because they wrapped a mound of tape around the so called break in the wiring. Who is out here to help put these guys in their place. I pay big money for a nice car and I am plagued with problems. They won't like me for sending this info in. But I am mad now. I am tired of taking the car in for repeated repairs. Any insight or info you could give me would be appreciated. I am looking to sell but that will be my last resort, because I will lose money. Thank you for taking the time to read this message.
