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. Notes: A prime example of why you should never buy the first model year of a new vehicle.

2009 Dodge Journey Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 302009


  • 20,000 miles


April 30, 2009 the "ignition node module" went out on my 2009 Dodge Journey. As of today I do not have my car. I live in Louisiana and my car is in ft. Walton, Florida at a lee Chrysler Dodge. There was no warning to let me know this was about to happen. Me, my wife, and two children were left stranded in Florida. The car is at the Florida dealership pending being fixed.
