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: The Dodge Journey got a major overhaul in 2011. Let's hope it's better than the first generation (2009-2010) -- it couldn't be much worse.

Journey 6-cyl

  • miles


This is the first incident 2 months after I purchased this brand new truck. The car had no power at all. It would not start. I had to have it towed from my driveway. About 6 months later the car would not go into gear the head or brake lights would not work. I took it back to the dealership where I purchased it for the fourth time and it is has been in the service center about a month and they have no answers. I have have called Dodge numerous times and can't get any help from anyone. This vehicle is not safe I have been pulled over by police numerous times for no lights and stranded because the car would not go into gear.
