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.

I own a 2007 Dodge Magnum. My complaint is about the gear shifter on Dodge vehicles. The shifter sticks in the park position and has to be replaced at owners cost. My understanding this is an ongoing problem with this company's vehicles. I spoke with an employee with the dealership I have my car repaired, he made a statement that they have to repair about 10 a week. If this is an ongoing problem, do you not think the car company should be responsible in replacing the part that is malfunctioning ??

My car was put in park so that a gate could be closed, then the car wouldn't register that the car was in "park"....the car would not come out of park. The tow cost me $400 and the repair bill was close to $500. My mechanic said that the "drive shaft" was broken...that it was "shattered" because it's just a plastic piece unlike any other time I was driving on the fwy at about 70 mph when the car lost all power...very scary...all of a sudden power came back on thank god...but scary..!!
