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.

Third time is a charm, right?

It blew the head gasket three times before 100K miles. (Approx 30, 60 and 90K miles).

At 30K - covered under warranty. They had no idea why it happened.

At 60K - Covered by my Geico "mechanical breakdown" insurance coverage with $250 deductible. Words "Engine Design Flaw" started to be tossed around.

At 90K - I sold the car cheap to a mechanic who was familiar with the issue. He repaired it and gave it to his daughter who continued to drive it for a couple more years.

In addition to the head gasket issues - The fuel pump failed at 12K miles and the backup lights failed for different and unknown reasons throughout ownership.

I have five postings on here about my 1995 dodge neon, which was my first new car.

Neon

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles

It blew the head gasket three times before 100K miles. (Approx 30, 60 and 90K miles). The dealership guys in New Milford, Connecticut were very nice, courteous and helpful, but in the end, my car was just riddled with problems they would fully repair, only to have the same problem occur at the same mileage intervals.

In addition to the head gasket issues - The fuel pump failed at 12K miles and the backup lights failed for different and unknown reasons throughout ownership.
