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

The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Journey. While the vehicle was being serviced for routine maintenance, the technician noticed that the windshield wipers activated independently. In addition, the instrument panel indicators dimmed and failed to illuminate. The dealer stated that moisture and condensation inside of the wiring harness caused the wires to become corroded. As a result, the instrument cluster needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 77,600.

We purchased this vehicle 2/2011 with 47,000 miles and recently in 9/2011 at our regular oil change we were told the left-front tie rod was going to need replaced. Now the steering is loose, and its loud in the front end while driving over bumps. We don't feel like we should be replacing tie-rod ends this soon on this vehicle that is in excellent shape otherwise. I know there is a Dodge Ram recall campaign#10V65800 for the same thing. Could this be something also related to the 2009 Dodge Journey?

The consumer asked the dealer if there were any related recall on the vehicle and they stated they were not aware of any recalls. The consumer stated two days later, he received a recall letter in the mail. The consumer stated he mailed the receipts in for reimbursement, but he didn't receive the full amount. Updated 08/17/11.
