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: I hope I can stop you from buying this vehicle before you find out that it won't be able to stop you.

Then move the steering wheel and everything shut off again. Turned the car off and everything came back and has worked fine so far. However, the car wouldn't start earlier when turned on. Had to start the car 3 times before it came on.

I first bought the Dodge Journey in March 2015 used from a dealership. 2 months later I start seeing problems: -when I lock the vehicle, occasionally after sitting for a long time I will come out and the windows will all be down and the vehicle unlocked -I have had many occasions where I try to start the vehicle and it just clicks. I have to move the shifter from park to neutral (sometimes several times for several minutes) to get the vehicle to start. I do not want to get stranded with this vehicle!! -passenger window will sometimes not roll down using the passenger side window button but operates normally using driver side controls there seems to be many electrical problems with this vehicle and I fear that we will end up in a crash related to electrical failure.
