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.

While I was getting my oil changed and tires rotated, the mechanic told me that my rear drum brakes did not function properly. The mechanic at precision tune in encinitas, ca, mentioned that he would need to replace the drum brake components. Because brake fluid leaked and rusted the insides of the the brakes, he also did mention that my right rear tire did not spin as it was suppouse to spin due to damage in the drum brake. While showing me the insides of my brakes, he mentioned that my car was also leaking brake fluid. Since my drum brakes do not function properly, the drum brakes distort my front disc brakes from making my car stop normally. Therefore not only putting my life in danger, but also putting my families and friends lifes in danger.

On the morning of 06/27/00, while driving to work. As I accelerated to 70 from 65, the donut on the exhaust manifold (flange gasket) gave out. The car began to sound like a lawnmower. I toke it to midas. They told me to check with Dodge for federal repairs for exhaust. Dodge said no, it wasn't covered, only catylitic converters and brain of elect. I didn't beleive the rep. He proved no proof. The brake system, had the rotors resurfaced and pads replaced at 36244. Is this normal? the drums had to be recerfaced also.
