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.

Horn is honking at random on 2010 Dodge Journey. This has happened on the highway 55+ mph, streets 10+ mph, and while parked in my driveway. The local Dodge dealership has upgraded software & issued a new key fob to me for more than $500 in fees but the issue has not been resolved. The horn honking is a safety issue at stop lights and in traffic as I am causing drivers around me to be alarmed for no reason. I have also had issues with windows & door locks activating at random. The door lock and window issues seem to have been resolved with the new key fob but the horn is still honking.

Random horn honking. Vehicle will start honking horn just sitting in the garage or driving down the road. Took to dealer but was informed they never heard this problem before. As being a vehicle test driver for Volvo vehicles I know about updates. I finally got the Dodge dealer to do an update that worked for a few months. The dealer informed me there was no other update. I informed them I thought this was a safety issue. What more can I say, I took the fuses out so the horn would stop honking. Next step lawyer?

Vehicle starts honking on its own for short periods of time. Sometimes just parked on the driveway, and now some times as it is moving. It will stop for hours or days at a time, and then reoccur.

The interior lights stays on for a long period of time when I start and after shutting down the SUV. The interior lights go out about 15 minutes or so after turning the SUV off. Once I start the SUV and drive, the interior light remains on in the front & upper rear overhead. The electronic key is now locking my doors just from touching the top of the key. There are times, I'm not hitting the button to lock, but just from touching the top of the key with my finger, the doors will automatically lock.scary!!! the steering wheel shakes visibly when braking.

My vehicle was parked in my driveway and the horn beep once. A few hours later I went beeped again. The next day it started beeping continually, and I had to remove the fuse to stop the horn from blowing. I replace the fuse and had no problems for about a month. Then while on vacation in myrtle beach the horn started blowing no stop. I had to remove the fuse again. When I replaced it the horn started blowing again. I have since removed the fused and tried disconnecting the battery. The horn still continues to blow non-stop.
