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

I was with out a car for 6 weeks, while this was being fixed at the low mileage it has. I was luck I had the extended warranty. But still at the mileage this should not of happened. I want Dodge to give me a new car. At this time only having the back 2 weeks the compression rings are shot. Once again I am with out a car. At 54th miles I had transmission work done on it. And only at 6 months old the drivers side door kept going off of alignment. This car is junk and I would never recommend a Dodge to anyone, especially if Dodge does not help me out. The Senior Customer Clerk at Dodge laughed at me and then hung the phone up. Mr. Peter Gibbons was his name. I have contacted many many people at Chrysler and no one can or will help me or they simply do not return phone calls.
