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 driving at any speed, the gear shifter will automatically move out of position without the brake pedal being depressed. The failure occurred on numerous occasions when the contact slightly tapped the gear shifter, which caused the vehicle to shift into gear or neutral while in motion. The contact considers this to be a very serious safety risk. The failure mileage was 40 and current mileage was 300. Updated 06/09/08
