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.

I purchased this Dodge Neon used with 23,000 miles. I have had nothing but problems with it since the very beginning. First the fuel pump went out. We had continuous problems with oil leaking and overheating. The air-conditioning has started to work only occassionally. The seals on the windows are very poor and it always sounds like the window needs to be rolled up. The trunk didn't have any seal to protect against the rain and my interior was flooded several times during the winter, over a couple of years until we were able to figure out where the problem was. I actually had to remove the back seat and all interior carpet for the rainy season. Now the water pump and my head gasket have given out. I had heard about the head gasket problems on my many service visits, but always held out hope until now that is. These repairs will cost me well over $1,000. And the car is barely 4 years old. Very big mistake I made purchasing the Dodge Neon, not only is it always in need of repair, but they have the absolute worse dealer customer relations and service department that I have ever dealt with. I stopped going to Dodge for service after my first couple of encounters with them.
