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.

Intrepid 2.7L V6

Basically just wanted to say that IF you have an oil light it might not be the end of the world. I know i thought that the engine is toast after reading all the complains, and i presume some people out there will "stop putting money into the car" if they know its gonna break down. In my case i had a faulty oil pressure sensor that i personally changed. Part: 10$. Labor: took me an hour as an amateur. I used a 1 1/16 inch long socket on bendable neck wrench. If i had to do it again i could in 15 min.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 163,533 miles

I BOUGHT THE CAR ON FRIDAY 01/19 AND 7MILES FROM THE LOT THE OIL LIGHT COMES ON. I DID OIL CHANGE RIGHT WAY EVEN THOUGH I HAD 3000 MILES BEFORE I JUST WANTED TO STAY SAFE CUZ MA PREVIOUS CAR A 93 TOY CAMRY DID THE SAME THING AND BROKE DOWN ON HIGHWAY. AROUND 10PM THAT NIGHT CHECK ENGINE COMES ON AND AROUND 12:30AM NXT DAY, AIRBAG LIGHT COMES ON AND GO AWAY. HEATING AND A/C IS EXCELLENT, ENGINE SOUNDS GREAT THOUGH. I FEEL BAD BECAUSE I NEVER SUPPORTED HOMELAND CARS AND SINCE FOREIGN DIDNT WORK FIRST TIME I THOUGHT HOME IS TO LOOK FOR. I AM THINKING MAYBE ELECTRICAL BUT THE EXHAUST HAS A LITTLE THICK THAN NORMAL SMOKE. AMERICAN ENGINEERS NEED TO GO TO HONDA JAPAN FOR 15YRS TRAINING
