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

Rear ened another car at 25 M.P.H and the driver and passenger side air bags did not deploy. Also the driverside seat belt did not lock thus causing me to hit the steering wheel and a trip to the emergency room!

problem #2

  • miles
The driver's seat belt locks without reason. This has caused several near accidents when trying to change lanes or merging onto the interstate. The driver has to lean forward to view past the blind spots, but the seat belt lockes if the vehicle is on a curve with/without the brakes being activated. Also when braking for a light or other reason, at normal speed, the seat belt locked which caused neck burns, rubs, etc on the driver. (basically, if the driver moves in any way, the seat belt locks).
