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

problem #3

I am a owner of this 1998 Dodge Neon.. Yes, I said it. It was my dream car when I was an teenager. Now I truly wish I didn't own one....

My car just don't want to start when I want it to, it makes a clicking noise when attempting to start it, it dies in the middle of the road and shows the oil light and the brake light, it over heats and has no power when it's hot out side, and smells like brake fluid all the time.

It will die also if I try to turn on the AC which doesn't if work...
