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.

Journey STX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,000 miles

I guess to save money the auto maker put plastic hoses on the wiper washer system of the Journey. When we moved from Texas(where I bought it) to Missouri, the hose did not fair well in the colder weather. The hose cracked and broke, what a irritation not to be able to clean your windshield while driving in the snow...yuk. Props to the Missouri Dodge dealer though, they fixed it in a jiffy and now the hose is rubber.
