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: This is a classic example of why you should avoid the first model year of a new car. Sure, it's new and shiny but there's going to be some growing pains.

The 2005 Magnum has problems with the gear shifter getting stuck, a shaky and sometimes stalled engine and transmission failure at 75,000 miles.

Let someone else deal with those headaches.

Right front tire has viberation and slapping noise. Abnormal wear on outside. 1st time--cnd. 2nd time--cnd. 3rd time--rotated tires. 4th time balanced tires. Dealer said I was making too many long trips, driving on curvy roads. Recommended rotation every 3K miles. After three visits for the same problem, dealer rotated tires sending the problem tire to the rear of the car. On the 4th visit I insisted they remove the wheel and check for balance. The tire was out of balance. Balanced tires and fixed the viberation, but the slapping noise is still there. I now have to fight the tire company, which in most cases, the company wins.
