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.

1998 Dodge Neon Owner Comments

Being that this is a new car I did not expect that the head gasket would go. Upon talking to service repair advisors at my local dealer they informed me that this has been common for the Neons. They have seen defective gaskets, but the Chrysler Corp. Has not yet notified or sent out a recall notice for this. My car also experienced several elecrtical anomolies as I was told. The check engine light came on repeatedly and no codes were found that signified a problem so the service man just kept reseting the light. This of course was not acceptable for me, so I had them replace the sending unit to the light(computer control unit). Unfortunetly the problem persists(4 attempts at repairs have been made). I have found no resolve for my problem, thus I contact you. Hoping for any advice or help this may provide.
